Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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]
