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 For those we love within the veil,
who once were comrades of our way,
we thank thee, Lord; for they have won
to cloudless day.

2 Free from the fret of mortal years,
and knowing now thy perfect will,
with quickened sense and heightened joy
they serve thee still.

3 O fuller, sweeter is that life,
and larger, ampler is the air:
eye cannot see nor heart conceive
the glory there;

4 nor know to what high purpose thou
dost yet employ their ripened powers,
nor how at Thy behest they touch
this life of ours.

5 And life for them is life indeed,
the splendid goal of earth’s strait race;
and where no shadows intervene
they see thy face.
