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 I am looking beyond the darkness
Gath’ring so oft around me here;
And a blessed, a holy vision
Lends to my soul sweet cheer.
I am looking beyond my toiling,
Waiting to hear the Lord say, Come,
Then with him I shall rest forever
Safe in my heav’nly home.
2 I am looking beyond the pathways
Often so rough for weary feet,
To the rapture of pure redeem’d ones
Treading the golden street. [Refrain]
3 I am looking beyond sad parting,
Trials of life so hard to bear,
To the meeting in God’s fair city;
Sorrow comes never there. [Refrain]
4 I am looking beyond the earth-life
Soon with its cares to close for me;
And by faith, in the realms eternal
Glories untold I see. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Summerland #120
