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 Faith discerns a country brighter than day,
It is free from earthly sorrow and care;
With my journey ended and my battle won,
I shall rest in mansions built over there.

Refrain:
Over there! Over there! When my work here is done,
I shall go to that land so beautiful and fair;
Over there! Over there! O I long for the joy
And the peace of the home over there.

2 Just beyond the river flowing so still
Through the shadows veiling time’s solemn shore,
Lies the land eternal where redeemed ones dwell,
And where blight of evil comes nevermore. [Refrain]

3 In the light that shineth there from the face
Of the blessèd Savior I shall abide;
Through the endless ages saved by His shed blood,
I shall in His presence be satisfied. [Refrain]
