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 Dearest friendships here are broken,
But there is a city fair
Where no parting word is spoken;
Some glad morning, meet me there.

Refrain:
Meet me there, O meet me there,
Heaven’s untold bliss to share;
In the home on high there’s no sad goodbye,
Some glad morning, meet me there.

2 Where the stream of life is flowing
May we wander free and blest;
Where the healing trees are growing,
After toiling may we rest. [Refrain]

3 Where no storm clouds throw their shadows
On the glorious summer hours,
Straying thro’ celestial meadows,
May we gather deathless flowers. [Refrain]

4 Where redemption’s song is pealing
Forth in grandeur let us meet,
And in grateful worship kneeling,
Cast our crowns at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]
