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 darkest hour
The morning draweth nigh;
After the tempest’s power,
The clear blue sky.

2 After the drifting snow,
The sunny days of calm;
After the crushing blow,
God’s healing balm.

3 After the sad good-bye
New friends around us throng;
After the burden’d sigh,
The sweetest song.

4 After the cross of tears,
The crown of joy is given;
After earth’s weary years,
The rest of heav’n.
