Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Beyond this land of parting, losing, and leaving,
Far beyond the losses, darkening this,
And far beyond the taking and the bereaving,
Lies the summer-land of bliss.

Refrain:
Land beyond, so fair and bright!
Land beyond, where is no night!
Summer-land, God is its light,
O happy summer-land of bliss!

2 Beyond this land of toiling, sowing, and reaping,
Far beyond the shadows, darkening this,
And far beyond the sighing, moaning, and weeping,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]

3 Beyond this land of sinning, fainting, and falling,
Far beyond the doubtings, darkening this,
And far beyond the griefs and dangers befalling,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]

4 Beyond this land of waiting, seeking, and sighing,
Far beyond the sorrows, darkening this,
And far beyond the pain, and sickness, and dying,
Lies the summer-land of bliss. [Refrain]
