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

Just over the river are palaces grand

Just over the river are palaces grand

Tune: [Just over the river are palaces grand]
Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Just over the river are palaces grand,
And mansions so lovely and fair,
They're fashioned and made by our Saviour's own hand,
And He is inviting us there.

Home, home, beautiful home,
Home of the pure and the blest;
Home, home, wonderful home,
Home of eternal rest.

2. Tho' storm clouds and tempests awhile must abide,
And trials and crosses must come,
The mansions are ready, the portals are wide,
And Jesus will soon take us home. [Refrain]

3. A few weary journeys, a few busy days,
'Mid tears and temptations and pray'r,
Our pray'rs will be turned to hosannas of praise
As Jesus shall welcome us there. [Refrain]

4. For ever we'll dwell in those mansions so nigh,
And bask in the glory of God,
Rememb'ring this life as a short, broken sigh,
Forgetting the thorns we have trod. [Refrain]
