Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the pleasant land of Heaven,
From all earth’s sad doubts and fears,
Where there never comes a sorrow,
Thro’ the great eternal years;
Where the dear ones, bright and blessèd,
Walk the quiet waters nigh,
In the pleasant land of Heaven,
Will you meet me by and by?

Refrain:
O the pleasant land, O the pleasant land,
Land beyond earth’s clouded sky
In that goodly land, in that goodly land,
Will you meet me by and by?

2 In the pleasant land of Heaven,
All our thought shall be in love;
Every good affection guide us,
In our happy home above;
All our way shall end in brightness,
There is no o’erclouded sky;
In the pleasant land of Heaven,
Will you meet me by and by? [Refrain]

3 In the pleasant land of Heaven,
Oh, what raptures wait us there!
By the life stream ever flowing,
Thro’ the city wondrous fair;
Sweet the happy angel voices,
Glad the strain they raise on high,
In the pleasant land of Heaven,
Will you meet me by and by? [Refrain]
