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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Far, far beyond the storms that gather
Dark o’er our way.
There shines the light of joy eternal
Bright in the realms of day,

Refrain:
There shall be sorrow, pain, and parting
Grieve our hearts no more;
Soon, soon we’ll meet beyond the river,
Safe on the Homeland shore.

2 Far, far beyond rolling billows
Faith spreads her wings;
Love tells us of the golden City,
Hope of its glory sings. [Refrain]

3 Far, far beyond the vale and shadow
Loved ones have passed;
We’ll meet them in the “many mansions,”
All gathered home at last. [Refrain]

4 O blessed morn of joy unbounded!
O glorious day!
There every tear of grief and anguish
Jesus shall wipe away. [Refrain]
