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 of bliss, where the fields are bright,
And green are the hills so fair,
Where faith is lost in the joy of sight,—
My heart and my home are there.

Refrain:
Home, sweet home, where the friends above
Are waving their hands to me,
My soul has flown on the wings of love,—
In dreams I have been with thee.

2 Land of bliss, where they weep no more,
And toil with its care shall cease,
Where life is pure, for its storms are o’er
And hushed in the calm of peace. [Refrain]

3 Land of bliss, where my Lord and King
Will call me from earth away
To see his face, and his praise to sing,
And bask in eternal day. [Refrain]

4 Land of bliss, I must watch and wait,
And long for thy vales so fair,
Till clothed in white I shall pass thy gate,
And walk with my Saviour there. [Refrain]
