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 By and by we’ll walk in light supernal,
‘Mid the scenes of beauty ever vernal,
While our souls are thrilled with joys eternal,
In that country over yonder.

Some sweet day where living waters flow,
Wearing garments whiter than the snow,
Saved by grace, a joy divine we’ll know,
In that country over yonder.

2 There are mansions fair beyond all telling,
Where the ransomed of all climes are dwelling,
With their praise of Jesus loudly swelling
In that country over yonder. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how sweet where sorrow cometh never,
Where love’s tender ties no death can sever,
Safe with Jesus to abide forever
In that country over yonder. [Refrain]
