We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Hope of the Righteous

Representative Text

1 Beyond this world of toil and care,
Beyond this veil of gloom;
There is a land, a happy land,
A place we call our home.

Refrain:
Oh, yes, we’ll trust Him while we live!
We’ll trust Him when we die;
And then when all our work is done,
We’ll reign with Him on high.

2 Oh, what a blessed hope is this,
An anchor to the soul;
And if we do our Savior’s will,
We’ll safely reach the goal. [Refrain]

3 God says, “Ye must be born again”;
To us this truth is giv’n;
And if we do not His commands,
We shall not enter heav’n. [Refrain]

To enter heav’n we must be pure
And holy in His sight;
And every day we surely must
Be walking in the light.

4 We’ll pray for God to keep our feet
Upon the Corner Stone;
We’ll give our hearts and lives to Him,
For we are not our own. [Refrain]
