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.

Representative Text

1 Come let us sing of homeland,
Down by the crystal sea;
Wonderful land where Jesus
Buildeth a mansion for me.

Over yonder,
Down by the crystal sea,
Over yonder,
There’s where I long to be;
No more sorrow, toil, grief, nor care,
In that homeland bright and fair,
Over, over there.

2 There is a wondrous city,
Streets of transparent gold;
Not half its glorious beauty
Has e’er to mortals been told. [Refrain]

3 Water of life there floweth,
Fruit in abundant store;
Citizens of that country
Hunger and thirst nevermore. [Refrain]

4 Come go with me to homeland,
Jesus invites you there;
Help spread the invitation,
Tell it to men everywhere. [Refrain]
