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 Into the great beyond,
Fair land of the morning bright,
Where riseth the glory of God most high
O’er shadowless realms of light.

Into the great beyond,
Over a waveless sea,
Bright angels will carry my soul away,
With Jesus forever to be.

2 Into the great beyond,
Whose gates are of pearl and gold,
Where murmur the waters of life so clear,
That sparkle with joy untold. [Refrain]

3 Into the great beyond,
Where summer eternal reigns,
And covers with lilies of fadeless bloom
The beautiful smiling plains. [Refrain]

4 Into the great beyond,
Where voices I love so well,
Sweet voices that carol the glad new song
Are calling me home to dwell. [Refrain]
