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 Beyond the rolling sea,
There lies a peaceful shore,
From storms and tempests free,
Where billows sweep no more;
A mansion fair, just over there,
By faith I see, prepared for me.

Beyond the rolling sea,
A mansion waits for me;
And sweet my rest shall be,
Beyond the rolling sea.

2 Beyond the rolling sea,
Angelic forms appear;
And, floating down to me,
Seraphic songs I hear;
And this the song on every tongue,
“Redemption free on Calvary.” [Refrain]

3 Beyond the rolling sea,
They beckon me to come,
And wait to welcome me,
With dear ones gathered home;
All danger past, in heaven at last,
I soon shall be beyond the sea. [Refrain]
