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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

125. Triumph By and by

1 The prize is set before us,
To win his words implore us,
The eye of God is o'er us,
From on high;
His loving tones are calling,
While sin is dark, appalling;
'Tis Jesus gently calling,
He is nigh.

By and by we shall meet him,
By and by we shall greet him,
And with Jesus reign in glory, by and by.

2 We'll follow where he leadeth,
We'll pasture where he feedeth,
We'll yield to him who pleadeth
From on high;
Then naught from him shall sever,
Our hopes shall brighten ever,
And faith shall fail us never,
He is nigh.

3 Our home is bright above us,
No trials dark to move us,
But Jesus, dear, to love us,
There on high;
We'll give him best endeavor,
And praise his name forever;
His precious ones can never,
Never die.
