We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Hark! a voice from Eden stealing,
Such as but to angels known,
Hope its song of cheer is singing,
"It is better farther on."

Chorus:
It is better farther on
It is better farther on,
It is better farther on,
It is better farther on.

2. Hope is singing, still is singing,
Softly in an under tone;
Singing as if God had taught it,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

3. Night and day it sings the same song,
Sings it when I sit alone;
Sings it so the heart may hear it,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

4. On the grave it sits and sings it,
Sings it when the heart would groan;
Sings it when the shadows darken,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

5. Farther on! Oh! how much farther?
Count the mile-stones one by one;
No! no counting, only trusting,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]
