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.

Far beyond this world of sorrow

Far beyond this world of sorrow

Author: C. Collins
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Far beyond this world of sorrow,
Where the ransomed millions rest,
There's a glorious endless morrow
In the mansions of the blest.

2 There, 'neath bowers of deathless glory,
Ev'ry heart, with peace possessed,
Sweetly chants redemption's story
In the mansions of the blest.

3 There are those we've loved and cherished,
Leaning on our Saviour's breast;
They're at home--not dead or perished,
In the mansions of the blest.

4 There the day knows no declining,
Neither shade nor twilight rest,
But a sunlight brightness shining
In the mansions of the blest.
