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

1 How beautiful and true the life
Of our dear friend and brother!
He looked above earth’s sin and strife,
To joys that live forever.

Refrain:
How sweet to think that by and by,
Our spirits filled with gladness,
Thro’ Jesus’ name, we’ll meet on high,
Where comes no sin or sadness.

2 He sought to do the Savior’s will,
Now rest, sweet rest, is given,
And tho’ the flesh lies cold and still,
The spirit lives in Heaven. [Refrain]

3 Oh, let us ever faithful be,
’Till we shall meet in glory,
Then thro’ a blest eternity,
We’ll sing redemption’s story. [Refrain]
