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 light of setting suns,
Beyond the clouded sky,
Beyond where starlight fades in night,
I have a home on high.

Refrain
A mansion there, not made with hands,
A place prepared for me;
And while God lives, and angels sing,
That home my home shall be.

2. Beyond all pain, beyond all care,
Beyond life’s mystery,
Beyond the range of time and change,
My home’s reserved for me. [Refrain]

3. Swift flying worlds, their nights that roll
Far out on seas of light,
Will bring no darkness to my soul;
My home’s beyond the night. [Refrain]

4. My sins and sorrows, strifes and fears,
I bid them all farewell,
High up amid th’eternal years,
With Christ, my Lord, to dwell. [Refrain]
