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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Is it true that some sweet day

Representative Text

1 Is it true that some sweet day
We shall greet our loved ones gone?
True that tears are wiped away
In that land of endless morn?
Yes, 'tis true, I know 'tis true,
There's a land all bright and fair;
And a crow of glory too,
In that home just over there.

2 Is it true that streets of gold
Lead from gates of pearl so rare?
True that half has not been told
Of that home just over there?
Yes 'tis true, I know 'tis true,
That the streets are paved with gold:-
True that of that city fair,
Half has never yet been told.

3 Is it true that naught of sin
Ever finds an entrance there?
Is it true that once within
All are free from grief and care?
Yes, 'tis true, I know 'tis true,
All the saints are robed in white,
And the endless ages thro'
Know no sin, no pain, no night.
