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.

Representative Text

1 Beyond the hills, beyond the sea,
Beyond the sunset’s gold,
Bright mansions wait for you and me
With glories all untold!

A home of peace and love and light,
When scenes of earth are past!
O may our feet be led aright,
To walk those streets at last!

2 No trace of sorrow enters there,
All tears are wiped away:
There is no sickness, pain, or care
Within that Land of Day! [Refrain]

3 With joyful eyes we then shall meet
The loved for which we long,
With them we’ll walk the golden streets
And sing the glad new song! [Refrain]
