During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

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]
