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

Full Text

1 I have heard of a land, of a beautiful land,
That is over the dark rolling sea,
And I know there are joys that are waiting me there,—
But what will the first greeting be?

Refrain:
There’ll be music, there’ll be singing,
And throughout all heaven ringing
There’ll be shouts of hallelujah o’er and o’er;
But I know the first to meet me,
And with welcome smile to greet me,
Will be Jesus when I reach the golden shore.

2 Oh, I know that my Saviour has gone to prepare
In his kingdom a mansion for me,
And I know there’s a crown and a robe and a song,—
But what will the first greeting be? [Refrain]

3 Many loved ones have gone to that bright, happy land,
But their faces again I shall see,
And we’ll clasp their glad hands on that beautiful strand,—
But what will the first greeting be? [Refrain]

4 When I pass through the vale of the shadow of death
To that land where the weary are free,
I shall join in the song of the purified throng,—
But what will the first greeting be? [Refrain]
