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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Beyond the shadows of the sinking day,
Beyond the winter and the gleam of May,
Beyond the storms that beat the rocky strand,
There waits the blessed Sunshine Land.

The Sunshine Land we soon shall see,
And O how happy we shall be;
From every sin and sorrow free,
There to dwell eternally.

2 Beyond the weary sickness and the pain,
Beyond the loss and eager strife for gain,
Beyond the tempter seeking to command,
There waits the blessed Sunshine Land. [Refrain]

3 Beyond the bloom of spring and autumn bright,
Beyond the morn and darkness of the night,
Beyond the fears that rise on every hand,
There waits the blessed Sunshine Land. [Refrain]
