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.

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]
