Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

1 Just across the jasper sea,
Many loved ones watch and wait;
Sweet the greeting there will be,
When I meet them at the golden gate.

Golden gate, golden gate,
Many loved ones watch and wait,
Golden gate, golden gate,
When I meet them at the golden gate.

2 When across the cold, cold wave,
I beside the loved ones stand;
WE will sing his power to save,
All who live to keep his blest commands. [Refrain]

3 Joy will fill each soul that day,
And our love to him be great;
Who hath washed our sins away,
And hath opened wide the golden gate. [Refrain]
