We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 In Heaven, bright Heaven, the home of the blest,
Where sorrow’s unknown, I am longing to rest;
To gain its fair portals my efforts shall be,
For loved ones are waiting in Heaven for me,
To gain its fair portals my efforts shall be,
For loved ones are waiting in Heaven for me.

2 To Heaven, sweet Heaven, I’m hoping to go,
When I have accomplished my mission below;
The Bible forever my standard shall be,
For loved ones are waiting in Heaven for me.
The Bible forever my standard shall be,
For loved ones are waiting in Heaven for me.

3 For Heaven I’m striving, and ne’er will give o’er,
Till safely I stand on the glittering shore;
Beyond the dark waters of life’s stormy sea,
With loved ones now waiting in Heaven for me,
Beyond the dark waters of life’s stormy sea,
With loved ones now waiting in Heaven for me.
