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.

Representative Text

1 In fancy we picture that beautiful land,
With its waters of crystal so clear;
With longing we think of the bright angel band,
And the time its sweet music we’ll hear.

In fancy we picture that beautiful land
Where the glorious Lamb is the light;
How happy we’ll be when up there we shall stand,
And for aye in His praises unite!

2 In fancy we picture the throne of our God,
And the splendor surrounding it there;
For Heaven’s fair courts has no earthly one trod,
Or beheld all their beauties so rare. [Refrain]

3 We cannot tell truly of Heaven, our home,
Tho’ we strive while we live thro’ the years;
We cannot know truly till God calls us "Come"
To that land where there’ll be no more tears. [Refrain]
