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 Angels above are singing,
Heavenly harps are ringing,
Voices to me are bringing
Whispers of joy to be;
Oh, to be yonder, up yonder,
Never, no, never to wander,
Ever my heart growing fonder,—
Fonder, dear Master, of Thee.

2 There, where the stars are gleaming,
There, where Thy smile is beaming,
Sweetly my soul is dreaming,
Longing Thy face to see;
Ever Thy power confessing,—
Seeking Thy favor and blessing,
Still is my soul ever pressing,—
Pressing yet nearer to Thee.

3 Nevermore sin nor sighing,
Nevermore grief nor crying,
Nevermore pain nor dying,—
Joy evermore for me;
Praising Thee ever and ever,
Leaving Thee never, no, never,
Dwelling in glory forever,—
Ever, forever with Thee.
