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.
1. A summer of life is coming,
When this winter of death is gone;
And a song of joy I am humming
For the birth of that summer land morn.
'Tis for all who are living to gain it,
For Christ is the Sun of that sky;
In his light we may press to attain it
That summer land drawing so nigh.
2. A summer of smiles is nearing
For this winter so drear of tears,
And I sing my own heart's cheering,
Of the end of the sorrowful year. [Chorus]
3. A summer of bliss with the parted,
When this winter of graves is no more;
Not a sigh that shall say weary-hearted,
From a lip on that summer land shore. [Chorus]
