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 been thinking today as my thoughts began to stray;
Your memory to me’s worth more than gold;
As you ride upon the plain midst the sunshine and the rain,
You’ll be rounded up within the Master’s fold.

Refrain
We’ll be rounded up in glory by and by;
We’ll be rounded up in glory by and by;
When the milling time is o’er,
And we stampede no more,
We’ll be rounded up in glory by and by.

2. May we lift our voices high till the glorious by and by,
And be known by all thro’ God’s own brand of love;
For His property we are, and He’ll know us from afar,
And will round us up in glory by and by. [Refrain]

3. As we look upon the plain to the cowboys who have fain
While the raging storm and lightning flashes by;
We will meet to part no more on that happy golden shore
When we’re rounded up in glory by and by. [Refrain]
