Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Cheer up, my brother, sister, the world may laugh at you,
They did it to your Master, and they crucified Him too,
The grave it could not hold Him, He's reigning now on high,
And soon we'll all be with Him in the sweet by and bye.

Chorus:
Oh! that will be joyful in that land so fair
I shall be like my Saviour, His glory I shall share,
Oh! that will be joyful, 'twill be a grand surprise,
When God Himself shall wipe away all tears from our eyes.

2 The night it may be stormy and all around look dark,
And Satan, too, will try his best to sink your little barque;
With Jesus in the vessel, dry up your tearful eye,
For soon we'll all be with Him in the sweet by and bye. [Chorus]

3 He'll never, never leave us, nor yet forsake us here,
His word shall stand for ever, and we've nothing now to fear,
He's fitting up a mansion above the bright blue sky,
And soon we'll all be with Him in the sweet by and bye. [Chorus]

4 Poor sinner, come to Jesus, for time is flying fast,
Your days on earth will soon be o'er , and you will breathe your last.
Come with us to that country, up there they never die,
And praise the Lamb for ever in the sweet by and bye. [Chorus]
