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 Does darkness now come o’er thy soul?
There’ll be light on the other side.
Some day the clouds away will roll;
There’ll be light on the other side.

Refrain:
There’ll be light, there’ll be light,
There’ll be light on the other side.
In heav’n above there is no more night,
There’ll be light on the other side.

2 Does trouble dark now blight thy life?
There’ll be light on the other side.
When free from toil, and care, and strife,
There’ll be light on the other side. [Refrain]

3 Do shades of sorrow cross thy way?
There’ll be light on the other side.
When grief and sighing flee away,
There’ll be light on the other side. [Refrain]

4 To Jesus come, ye sad and lone,
There’ll be light on the other side.
And heaven make thy future home,
There’ll be light on the other side. [Refrain]
