As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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.
1 Far above the dark shadows of earth, I am told,
Are the mansions most wondrously fair,
Where the “King in His beauty,” our eyes shall behold,
And no sin and no death enters there.
Home, home, beautiful home,
Where cometh no sorrow no care,
I am thinking tonight of that beautiful home,
Which my Saviour has gone to prepare.
2 Often-times ‘mid the duties and trials of life,
When my spirit is sorely distrest,
How it soothes me to think of the rest I shall know,
In that beautiful home of the blest.
3 Sinner, haste to make ready for that happy home,
O, accept the dear Saviour as guide,
Tho’ lonely and homeless, on earth you may roam,
O, make sure of the joys that abide.
