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 After the storm that sweeps the sea,
After the drifting to the lea,
After the rocks and sands are passed,
Cometh the joy of home at last.

After all that here we see,
What will there be, What will there be?
After all that here we see,
After all—eternity.

2 After the winter long and drear,
After the snow-clouds disappear,
After the winds sweet odors bring,
Cometh the everlasting spring. [Refrain]

3 After the long and toilsome day,
After the sun's fierce burning ray,
After the toiler homeward goes,
Cometh the night and sweet repose. [Refrain]

4 After the course of life is run,
After it's work has all been done,
After the hands are on the breast,
Cometh the long and peaceful rest. [Refrain]

5 After the march of time shall cease,
After earth-strife shall end in peace,
After the changeful disappears,
Cometh the long eternal years. [Refrain]
