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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Beautiful city, blessed and fair,
Beautiful country, treasures most rare,
Beautiful land, who thy glories can tell—
With the redeem’d ones we there shall dwell.

Beautiful city, beautiful city,
Fashioned by Jesus the builder divine;
Beautiful city, beautiful city,
O when shall thy pleasures be mine.

2 Beautiful city, lovely thy light,
Beautiful city—never ‘tis night,
Beautiful mansion prepared there for me;
O how I long thy rich beauties to see. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful home when shall we be there,
Beautiful land, thy happiness share,
Beautiful city we long for the rest,
There with the Saviour be happy and blest. [Refrain]
