We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 I have started on my journey
To that better land above,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
I am walking with my Savior,
Singing of His wondrous love,
Hallelujah! in the morning I’ll be there.

Refrain:
I’ll be there, yes, I’ll be there,
When that morning breaks eternal, bright and fair;
Come and go with me to glory
Where we’ll rest forevermore,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there.

2 If I trust my precious Savior
And His blessèd word obey,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
He has promised to be with me
And to lead me all the way,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there. [Refrain]

3 Then when this short life is over
And my work on earth is done,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
I will enter life eternal
There to wear a shining crown,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there. [Refrain]

4 Come and go with me, dear brother,
To that blessèd home above,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
There we’ll meet our blessèd Savior
And all those we used to know,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there. [Refrain]
