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.

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 If I would reach that land of light,
That knows no gloom, no darksome night,
My soul must here with radiance glow,
God’s truth display, His glory show.

Refrain:
Lord, here in us Thy Heav’n prepare,
That we may find it heaven there;
With light and beauty, heav’nly love,
Attune our souls for Heav’n above.

2 If I would reach that land so fair,
Whose beauty shines beyond compare,
My life must here with beauty shine,
With purity and grace divine. [Refrain]

3 If I would reach that land of love,
Whose joy and peace await above,
I here must share the sufferer’s smart,
I here must win the tender heart. [Refrain]
