Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Land ahead! a light is gleaming
O’er the dark and sullen waves,
While the world at large is dreaming,
Thinking not of him who saves.
Land ahead! sweet words so cheering
To the tempest-tost and tried,
For the heavenly port we’re nearing,
Land for which we oft have sighed.

Refrain:
But amid the tempest’s road,
Zion’s ship is nearing shore;
Get the anchor o’er the rail
Soon we’ll cast within the vail.

2 Land ahead! “the night of weeping”
Yields to dawn of endless day;
Jesus comes to wake the sleeping
Jewels that are laid away.
Land ahead! our home in glory,
Pilgrims soon its shores will throng;
Then we’ll sing “the old, old story,”
And will shout redemption’s song. [Refrain]
