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 the place of mansions fair
I have waiting for me there
A building not made with hands;
So I’ll sing a joyful song,
For I’ll go ere very long
To a building not made with hands.

Refrain:
Not made with hands, not made with hands,
A building not made with hands, Hallelujah!
And I soon shall away forever to stay
In the building not made with hands.

2 Thro’ the Pentecostal pow’r
I am saved this very hour
A building not made with hands;
For the precious blood applied
Makes me fully satisfied
A building not made with hands. [Refrain]

3 When my earthly work is o’er
And I reach the other shore
A building not made with hands;
I shall see my Saviour’s face
Who redeemed me by his grace
A building not made with hands. [Refrain]
