Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Look Away to Heaven

Full Text

1 Look away, dear pilgrim, to heaven above:
Jesus is waiting for you;
Set aside earth’s striving, and seek treasure of
That realm beyond earthly view.

Refrain:
Look away to heaven—what glory awaits!
Watch, lest this world drag you down;
Dropping all distractions, then press for those gates—
There is your mansion and crown!

2 Never will you find what you need here to live:
This world cannot satisfy;
Jesus has the joy that this world cannot give,
And greater joys are on high. [Refrain]

3 Just a moment more and the trumpet shall sound—
Jesus is waiting for me;
Heaven has my heart-strings, for heaven I’m bound,
With Him in heaven I’ll be! [Refrain]
