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

Brother, thou hast left us lonely

Brother, thou hast left us lonely

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Brother, thou hast left us lonely,
Sorrow fills our hearts today;
But beyond this vale of sorrow
Tears will all be wiped away.

2 Brother, thou art sweetly resting,
Cold may be this earthly tomb,
But the angels sweetly whispered,
“Come and live with us at home.”

3 Brother, thou art sweetly rest
On the lovely Savior’s breast,
Where the wicked cease from troubling,
And the weary are at rest.

4 Brother, thou art sweetly resting,
Here thy toils and pains are o’er;
Pain and sickness, death and sorrow,
Never can distress thee more.
