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.
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.
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]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #10392
