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.

681. When I Can Read My Title Clear

1 When I can read my title clear
to mansions in the skies,
I'll bid farewell to every fear,
and wipe my weeping eyes,
and wipe my weeping eyes,
and wipe my weeping eyes;
I'll bid farewell to every fear,
and wipe my weeping eyes.

2 Should earth against my soul engage
and fiery darts be hurled,
then I can smile at Satan's rage,
and face a frowning world,
and face a frowning world,
and face a frowning world;
then I can smile at Satan's rage,
and face a frowning world.

3 Let cares like a wild deluge come,
and storms of sorrow fall!
May I but safely reach my home,
my God, my heaven, my all,
my God, my heaven, my all,
my God, my heaven, my all;
may I but safely reach my home,
my God, my heaven, my all.

4 There I shall bathe my weary soul
in seas of heavenly rest,
and not a wave of trouble roll
across my peaceful breast,
across my peaceful breast,
across my peaceful breast;
and not a wave of trouble roll
across my peaceful breast.
