Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

973. Bright Jewels

1 When all the dear children are gathering home,
We shall be there, we shall be there;
Bright jewels we’ll shine in that heavenly home,
We shall be there, we shall be there.

Refrain:
We shall be there in that morning,
We shall be there in that morning;
When all the dear children are gathering home,
We shall be there in that morning.

2 Bright jewels He’ll gather to shine in the sky,
We shall be there, we shall be there;
For this the dear Savior did suffer and die,
We shall be there, we shall be there. [Refrain]

3 We’ll sing with the angels that heavenly song,
We shall be there, we shall be there;
Our voices with music His praise shall prolong,
We shall be there, we shall be there. [Refrain]

4 We never shall part in that beautiful clime,
We shall be there, we shall be there;
So happy with Jesus in beauty sublime,
We shall be there, we shall be there. [Refrain]
