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. Can we read our title clear
To a mansion in the sky?
Could we look without a fear,
If we knew our end was nigh?

Refrain
Hallelujah! bless the Lord!
We shall conquer thro’ His Word;
Those who trust Him to the end
He has promised to defend.

2. If the Christian race we run,
And the cross we meekly bear,
When at last our work is done
Crowns in glory we shall wear. [Refrain]

3. O the visions of delight,
Breaking from the other shore!
O the morning calm and bright,
That shall dawn and fade no more! [Refrain]
