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 And may I still get there?
Still reach the heavenly shore?
The land forever bright and fair,
Where sorrow reigns no more?

There’ll be no sorrow there,
There’ll be no sorrow there,
In heaven above, where all is love,
There’ll be no sorrow there.

2 Shall I, unworthy I,
To fear and doubting given,
Mount up at last, and, happy, fly
On angel’s wings to heaven? [Refrain]

3 Hail, love divine and pure,
Hail, mercy from the skies!
My hopes are bright and now secure,
Upborne by faith I rise. [Refrain]
