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

Longing for Heaven and Glory

Jesus, I thirst, and go I must

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus, I thirst, and go I must,
I long to be above,
I long to sing to Christ my king,
Where oceans flow with love.

2 Ye happy souls that always roll
In love and joy and peace,
Which always run through God's dear son
Whose love will never cease.

3 You're blest I say and you shall stay
With Jesus Christ above,
And always swim along with him,
In oceans full of love.

4 Glory to God the Father be,
Glory to God the Son,
Glory to God the Holy Ghost,
Glory to God alone.
