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 I’ve a home prepared where the saints abide,
Just over in the glory-land;
And I long to be by my Savior’s side,
Just over in the glory-land.

Refrain:
Just over in the glory-land,
I’ll join the happy angel band,
Just over in the glory-land;
Just over in the glory-land,
There with the mighty host I’ll stand,
Just over in the glory-land.

2 I am on my way to those mansions fair,
Just over in the glory-land;
There to sing God’s praise and His glory share,
Just over in the glory-land. [Refrain]

3 What a joyful thought that my Lord I’ll see,
Just over in the glory-land;
And with kindred saved, there forever be,
Just over in the glory-land. [Refrain]

4 With the blood-washed throng I will shout and sing,
Just over in the glory-land;
Glad hosannas to Christ, the Lord and King,
Just over in the glory-land. [Refrain]
