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 Beautiful rainbow of promise,
Arching the lowering sky,
Glorious hope of tomorrow,
Life, endless life by and by.

With joy, with joy, we bask in the sunlight of love,
O promise of God never failing,
We’ll rise with our Savior above.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We’ll rise with our Savior, our Savior above.

2 Rise in our hearts blessed Jesus,
From our dead selves set us free,
Keep us, we pray, from all evil,
Till Thy dear face we shall see. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful rainbow of promise,
Telling of weeping long past,
Christ, like the sun, has arisen,
Lighting our darkness at last. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
