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.
1 I’m looking beyond to the city of light
Whose gates never close, where there never is night;
Where songs never cease and where praise to the King
Is ever and ever the song that they sing!
I’m looking beyond, to the city of light,
Whose gates never close,
Where there never is night;
I’m looking beyond, o’er the white crystal sea;
I’m looking, I’m looking, I’m looking beyond.
2 I’m looking beyond to the land of the blest
Where earth’s weary ones are for ever at rest;
I see the great host of the white-robed throng!
I hear the glad chorus! it echoes along! [Refrain]
3 I’m looking beyond, o’er the white crystal sea,
Where loved ones now stand and are waiting for me;
In melody sweet, I can hear them prolong
The strains of the wonderful, wonderful song! [Refrain]
4 I’m looking beyond, where the race has been run;
Earth’s crosses are lost and a crown has been won.
Already a host of the conquering throng
Are swelling the notes of the victory song! [Refrain]
5 I’m looking beyond to the city where He
A mansion in glory is keeping for me!
I’m looking beyond to the day when my soul
Shall join in the strains that eternally roll. [Refrain]Source: Give Thanks and Sing: for use in all religious meetings #19
