Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

883. Not Made with Hands

1 I know this earthly house shall fall,
But on that golden strand
I have a bright and blissful home,
A house not made with hands.

Refrain:
I’ve a house not made with hands,
I’ve a house not made with hands,
I’ve a house not made with hands;
I’ve a house not made with hands,
Over on that golden strand,
I’ve a house not made with hands.

2 There peace and joy fore’er shall stay,
And there, so fair, there stands,
Where shines one bright eternal day,
My house not made with hands. [Refrain]

3 No pain or sorrow e’er shall come,
We’ll clasp no parting hands,
And death shall never blight that home,
My house not made with hands. [Refrain]

4 And when this earthly house shall fall
I’ll answer God’s commands,
And find my home forevermore,
A house not made with hands. [Refrain]
