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

Representative Text

1 After the clouds their flight have sped,
After our days and years have fled,
After our care and toil, what then?
Say, shall we wake to life again?

If, on the Rock, our faith abide,
If, in its cleft, our souls we hide,
Then, with the Lord, we all may be
Safe in a blest Eternity.

2 After our seed on earth is sown,
After the time to reap has flown,
After the sunset hour is past,
Say, shall we wake in Heav’n at last? [Refrain]

3 After these changeful scenes shall end,
After our parting, friend with friend,
After a night of pain is o’er, [Refrain]
Say, shall we meet to weep no more?

4 After the cross we here lay down,
Is there for us a robe and crown?
Borne on the wings of joy and love,
Say, shall we dwell in Christ, above? [Refrain]
