Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Nearer to thee

Along the mountain track

Published in 2 hymnals

Author: Charles Beecher

Beecher, Charles, son of the well-known Dr. Lyman Beecher, whose autobiography he chiefly edited, and brother of Henry Ward Beecher, was born at Litchfield, Connecticut, 1815. Mr. Beecher was for some time a Congregational pastor at Georgetown, Mass. He has published Review of Spiritual Manifestations, 1853; Pen Pictures of the Bible, 1855, &c. His hymns were contributed to his brother's Plymouth Collection, 1855, and include:— 1. There's rest in the grave. Heaven. 2. We are on our journey home. Heaven. The latter is in the more extensive use, but both are unknown to the English collections. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
