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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I have a Home beyond the silent river,
Where loved ones wait to welcome me some day;
I have a Guide to lead me safely over,
When I have reached the ending of earth's way.

I have a Home, a Home beyond the river,
I have a resting place all love and peace;
I have a Home, a Home beyond the river,
Blest Home beyond, where toil and tears shall cease.

2 I have a Friend who e'er awaits my coming,
He stands with arms outstretched to fold me in;
And spite my woes and weariness of raoming,
He'll greet me with the love that bore my sin. [Refrain]

3 With Home and Friend beyond the silent river,
How fair will be the day that knows no night!
How sweet will be the songs I sing forever,
Eternally in God's all-gracious sight. [Refrain]
