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

Full Text

1 Angel bands are sweetly singing
Far above the starry sky,
Where with God, in endless glory,
We shall spend eternity.

Refrain:
Precious Savior, pure and holy,
Who for us once bled and died,
Help us that we may prove worthy
To be found at Thy right side.

2 This vain world is full of sorrow,
Full of sickness, death and pain,
But there waits a land immortal,
Where pure joy and gladness reign. [Refrain]

3 Fair and bright is yonder city,
Built beside the jasper sea,
Where there wait the many mansions,
Where from sin we shall be free. [Refrain]
