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 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.
