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 Above this earthly home of ours,
Of chilling winds, and fading flowers,
There is a home all bright and fair,
And all our hopes are centered there.

Refrain:
Oh happy home, oh mansions blest,
Where all God’s weary ones may rest;
For in that bright unclouded day,
Our God shall wipe all tears away.

2 There we shall meet the loved and lost,
Who over death’s dark river crossed;
There we shall see our Savior’s face,
And praise the wonders of His grace. [Refrain]

3 Here we may suffer grief and pain,
And tears may flow like falling rain;
But there where shines eternal day
God’s hand shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
