Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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]
