We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

A summer of life is coming

Representative Text

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]
