Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Beyond the bar on yonder share,
Across life's troubled sea,
There is a city bright and fair
Prepared for me, prepared for me.

I'll need no light of sun or star,
When I my Savior's face shall see;
That will be light enough for me,
Throughout a blest eternity,
Beyond the bar, beyond the bar.

2 Beyond the bar my King abides,
Among His jewels rare;
And some day I shall dwell with Him,--
My home is there, my home is there. [Refrain]

3 Beyond the bar there is no death,
And sorrow reigns no more;
There are no bruised and bleeding hearts
On that blest shore, on that blest shore. [Refrain]

4 Beyond the bar we'll meet again
The friends we've missed so long;
And with them sing, forevermore,
Unending song, unending song. [Refrain]

Coronation Hymns, 1910
