Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Beautiful city, the home of the blest,
Beautiful mansions where weary shall rest,
Beautiful river of life, never old,
Beautiful streets of the purest of gold.

O it is beautiful! “eye hath not seen,”
Neither hath ear heard the heavenly theme;
O it is beautiful! “eye hath not seen,”
Thrilling my soul with the heavenly theme.

2 Beautiful angels around the white throne,
Beautiful children forever our own,
Beautiful, sainted, enrobed in pure white,
Beautiful Saviour, refulgent with light. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful service of worship in song,
Beautiful family—perfectly one,
Beautiful harmony—living in love,
Beautiful scenes that await us above. [Refrain]

4 Beautiful greeting where friend meeteth friend,
Beautiful meeting that never shall end,
Beautiful day, with no shadow of night,
Beautiful vision, eternally bright. [Refrain]
