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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 In that land where none ever grow old,
In that land where the love-light ne’er dies,
Where no suff’ring and sorrows are known,
We shall meet far beyond the bright skies.

We shall meet on the bright golden shore,
Where there’s life and there’s love we are told,
And with dear ones shall part never more,
In the land where they never grow old.

2 There the flowers forever more bloom,
And life’s springtime shall ne’er pass away,
There’s no dreading of death or the tomb,
For the morning but openeth to day. [Refrain]

3 Sorrow’s tears never more shall be known,
Ev’ry heartache be banished for aye,
To our arms all the lov’d ones shall come,
In the beautiful land far away. [Refrain]

4 In the land where none ever grow old,
In the beauty of morning they’ll dwell,
There they tell us no partings are known,
And they never more say “fare-you-well.” [Refrain]
