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.

God's Tomorrow

Representative Text

1 God’s tomorrow is a day of gladness,
And its joys shall never fade;
No more weeping, no more sense of sadness,
No more foes to make afraid.

God’s tomorrow, God’s tomorrow,
Ev’ry cloud will pass away
At the dawning of that day;
God’s tomorrow,
No more sorrow,
For I know that God’s tomorrow
Will be better than today!

2 God’s tomorrow is a day of greeting:
We shall see the Savior’s face;
And our longing hearts await the meeting
In that holy, happy place. [Refrain]

3 God’s tomorrow is a day of glory:
We shall wear the crown of life;
Sing thro’ countless years love’s old, old story,
Free forever from all strife. [Refrain]
