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 know there’s a rest that remaineth for me,
A rest when my journey is o’er;
I know that the ransomed in bliss I shall see,
And labor and sorrow no more.

Then onward I’ll go, and with courage I’ll tread
The path my Redeemer has trod,
Since He hath declared there remaineth a rest,
A rest for the people of God.

2 I know there’s a rest that remaineth for me,
A rest with my Savior above,
Where, clothed in His image, His face I shall see,
And feast on the smile of His love. [Refrain]

3 I know there’s a rest that remaineth for me;
I’ll patiently wait till it come—
Till angels shall bear me away on their wings,
And Jesus shall welcome me home. [Refrain]
