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

79. Treasures of Heaven

1 There's a crown in heaven for the striving soul,
Which the blessed Jesus himself will place
On the head of each who shall faithful prove,
Even unto death, in the heavenly race.

Refrain:
Oh, may that crown in heaven be mine,
And I among the angels shine;
Be thou, O Lord, my daily guide,
Let me ever in thy love abide.

2 There's a joy in heaven for the morning soul,
Though the tears may fall all the earthly night;
Yet the clouds of sadness will break away,
And rejoicing come with the morning light.

Refrain:
Oh, may that joy in heaven be mine,
And I among the angels shine;
Be thou, O Lord, my daily guide,
Let me ever in thy love abide.

3 There's a home in heaven for the faithful soul,
In the many mansions prepared above,
Where the glorified shall forever sing
Of a Saviour's free and unbounded love.

Refrain:
Oh, may that home in heaven be mine,
And I among the angels shine;
Be thou, O Lord, my daily guide,
Let me ever in thy love abide.
