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.

Representative Text

1 In your search for the beautiful treasures of earth,
And the joy that the years shall unfold,
O do not forget the sweet treasures above,
The treasures that never grow old.

Refrain:
Treasures, sweet treasures, laid up above,
In the care of the Master’s own hand;
Far better than gold are the treasures we hold,
Laid up, laid up, laid up in that beautiful land.

2 As you bask in the rays of the sunlight of life,
Or tread thro’ the flowery glad,
O do not forget the fair flowers above,
The flowers that never grow old. [Refrain]

3 As you kiss the dear faces of friends that you love,
And cherish the forms that you hold,
O do not forget the dear faces above,
Those faces that never grow old. [Refrain]

4 When at evening you stand ‘neath the sunset of life,
And the west glows with crimson and gold,
Will your soul take its flight to the regions of light,
To the treasures that never grow old? [Refrain]
