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.

Representative Text

1 A land of light, a land of joy,
A land of sweet and high employ;
A land of peace, home-land above;
A land of love, eternal love.

O sinless land, bright sinless land,
So blest because a sinless land;
I long for thee, O sinless land,
Because the only blessed land.

2 A frostless clime, forever fair,
No tempest blasts can enter there;
No bud can blight, no blossom fade,
No sorrows cast their dismal shade. [Refrain]

3 No night, no death, no heated noon,
Forever fresh, eternal June;
No throb of pain, no weight of care,
Where songs of bliss fill all the air. [Refrain]

4 Be glad, my soul, each added year
Makes this bright land thrice doubly dear;
And while on earth, if saved from sin,
My heart may take its glories in. [Refrain]
