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 Know each other, blessed comfort!
When this mortal life is o'er,
We shall know our friends departed,
Kindred spirits gone before.
In our holy thrill of transport
They will be the first to share;
First to bid us kindly welcome;

We shall know, yes, know each other there,
We shall know, yes, know each other there;
We shall meet beside the crystal river,
We shall know each other there.

2 Know each other? who will question
Truth so grateful to the heart,
When its chords are torn and bleeding,
When its earthly hopes depart?
Christian love, how pure and sacred!
Who, the parting scene could bear,
Did not mercy whisper gently,
We shall know each other there? [Refrain]

3 Sweet the moments when we gather
In the house of God to pray;
Precious tears are those we mingle;
How they cheer us on our way!
Thro’ the glass of faith directed
To our Father’s mansion fair,
Comes the golden light of promise,
We shall know each other there! [Refrain]
