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. I have come thro’ sorrow’s valley, and thro’ sin’s darkest night;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And my soul is full of glory, for I’m living in the light,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home.

Refrain
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And I catch a glimpse of minaret and dome;
Hearing sweet celestial strains,
Where my Lord in glory reigns,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home.

2. My dear Savior has gone over to prepare me a place;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
In the glory of His presence, with my loved ones saved by grace,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]

3. I will lift mine eyes in gladness, to behold Heaven’s land;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And my faith becomes triumphant, for the vision is so grand;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]

4. O my brother from the wilderness, look up and behold;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
Now a mansion bright, a great white throne, and streets of shining gold,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]
