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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Just beyond the border land, behold a city bright,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Shadows never dim the skies, for Jesus is the light,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?

Refrain:
Land of perfect peace, bright and fadeless day,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Jesus is the light, Jesus is the way,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?

2 Thro’ its gates of shining pearl can come no taint of sin,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
Pain or death or falling tear can have no place within,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there? [Refrain]

3 Blessed home in love prepared for all the Saviour’s own,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there?
There the friends of earth shall meet and sing before the throne,
Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there? [Refrain]
