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 Bless the name of Christ the Lord for his soul reviving word,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye,
Happy tho’t that fills the soul as we journey to the goal,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye.

Refrain:
Bye and bye,
Bye and bye,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye
Bye and bye,
Bye and bye,
Bye and bye,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye.

2 Life eternal life is sure, if we faithfully endure,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye,
We can stem the rising tide with the Savior by our side,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye. [Refrain]

3 We have many trials here, but the Lord will soon appear,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye,
He will bear us in his love to his perfect rest above,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye. [Refrain]

4 We will trust and never fear for the triumph’s drawing near,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye,
If we only toil and wait soon beyond the golden gate,
We’ll be gathered home to Jesus bye and bye. [Refrain]
