Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 I shall see them again in the light of the morning,
When the night has passed by with its tears and its mourning,
Where the light of God’s love is the sun ever shining,
In the land where the weary ones rest.

2 I shall know them again though ten thousand surround them,
I shall hear their dear voice ’midst the blessèd ones round them,
And the love that was theirs on the earth shall detect them,
In the land where the weary ones rest.

3 ’Twas their lives in the past helped to fill me with gladness,
And the future is Heaven, the home with no sadness,
Where I see them today clad in bright robes of whiteness,
In the land where the weary ones rest.

4 Would I wish for them back from their bright home in Heaven?
No! in patience I’ll wait till the veil shall be riven,
And the Savior restores me the friends He has given,
In the land where the weary ones rest.

Author: Edward Husband

Husband, Edward was educated at St. Aidan's College, Birkenhead. Taking Holy Orders in 1866, he was successively Curate of Atherstone and Folkestone; and in 1878 Vicar of St. Michael and All Angels, Folkestone. In 1874 Mr. Husband published The Mission Hymnal, in which appeared his hymns as follows:— 1. Alas! poor world, I loved thee long. Rest in Jesus. 2. And dost Thou ask me, dearest Lord. Christ's Invitation, " Follow Me." 3. I must have Jesus only. Jesus only desired 4. Sweet Blood, dear ransom of our souls. The Blood of Jesus. These hymns are very simple, earnest, and impassioned: and bear a great resemblance to Facer's compositions. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
