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.
Harry Plantinga

Waiting for Us

Author: A. S. Doughty Hymnal: The Helper in Sacred Song #70 (1889) Hymnal Title: The Helper in Sacred Song First Line: Oft across life's pathway dreary Refrain First Line: Waiting for us there in the glorious summer land Lyrics: 1 Oft across life’s pathway dreary Bursts a heav’nly gleam, As some pilgrim lone and weary Nears the mystic stream; Then the sound of voices calling From a fairer clime, Cheers with echoes gently falling On the shores of time. Refrain: Waiting for us there in the glorious summer land, Gather’d with the saints, shouting vic’try on the strand; Waiting there to meet us, as Time’s ling’ring shadows flee; Waiting with songs to greet us, near the beautiful jasper sea. 2 Friends and lov’d ones gone before us To the Edenland, Sing the hallelujah chorus With the angel band; They upon our night of sorrow Ever looking down, Watch and wait the joyous morrow That shall bring the crown. [Refrain] 3 From the gift of inspiration Gleams a hallowed ray, Teaching heirs of Christ’s salvation— Angels guard their way— Waiting near the jeweled portal, Longing for the day, When we shall for crowns immortal Part with dying clay. [Refrain] Tune Title: [Oft across life's pathway dreary]
