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 Away beyond the stars which the midnight sky unfolds,
There are scenes of rarest beauty, and palaces of gold;
And o’er that lovely prospect there falls no winter’s snow,
There warblers sing in endless spring,
O brother, will you go?
There warblers sing in endless spring,
O brother, will you go?

2 There are cities rich in grandeur inviting you to come,
And who can tell the wealth of a heav’nly city home?
Its rural scenes, its mansions, its crystal streams that flow,
All, all are free for you and me,
O brother, will you go?
All, all are free for you and me,
O brother, will you go?

3 There leap the lame for joy, there the blind receive their sight;
There ears long closed to sound will be ravished with delight;
There tongues that never uttered a sentence here below,
Burst into song thro’ ages long,
O brother, will you go?
Burst into song thro’ ages long,
O brother, will you go?
