Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

Full Text

1 I will sing a song of that land so fair,
Over by the crystal sea;
Where the blessed throng of the ransomed are,
Over by the crystal sea.

Heav’nly Canaan, bright Canaan,
O may our portion be
To find a home in thee,
Heav’nly Canaan, bright Canaan,
Over by the crystal sea.

2 There no foes prevail, there no fears annoy,
Over by the crystal sea;
There our souls may dwell in eternal joy.
Over by the crystal sea. [Refrain]

3 We will rest in peace, by the waters side,
Over by the crystal sea;
In the love of Christ we shall there abide,
Over by the crystal sea. [Refrain]
