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 I’m heir to the mansions of glory,
I’m heir,
The Father has given the promise
Of joys in the kingdom of love.
No sickness nor sorrow shall enter,
No shadow of evening appear.
But bliss all immortal shall greet us,
And pleasures with never a fear.

I’m heir, I’m heir.
To mansions in heaven above;
I’m heir, I’m heir.
I’m heir to the kingdom of love.

2 We long for that home with our Savior,
That home
So bright.
Where sin cannot enter to harm us,
And life is on dream of delight.
We ask Thee for strength, our dear Father,
To bravely stand up for the right,
That when our earth-cares are all ended,
We’ll enter the kingdom of light. [Refrain]

3 How happy the faithful in glory,
The saints
At rest
Are singing the song of redemption,
Salvation for sinners oppressed.
For there are the blest of all ages,
Who wait on the beautiful shore,
To welcome the dear ones to heaven,
To dwell in that land evermore. [Refrain]
