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 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]
