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

Full Text

1. Come, all ye scattered race, and the Savior's love embrace;
You may see His smiling face yet, with care,
He is on the giving hand; will you come at His command?
And you will with angels stand, over there.

Chorus:
Over there, over there, there's a land of pure delight over there
We will lay our burdens down, and at Jesus' side sit down,
And will wear a starry crown, over there.

2. We are going through the land as a missionary band
TO lead sinners by the hand to Christ's care,
That salvation He may give, and they turn to Him and live
In that happy world of light over there.

3. O consider our stand, when He took us by the hand
From that dreadful bar of sand to His care.
And He placed us on the rock, now He owns us for His book.
And we are marching to His fold over there.
