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.

1 My brother, awake, and sing the sweet story,
Soon the day of reunion will come;
Then oh, what a wonderful singing in glory,
When all redeemed singers get home.

Then, oh, what a wonderful, wonderful singing,
When all redeemed singers get home;
Reunion, reunion, thro’ ages still ringing,
When all redeemed singers get home.

2 No mortal hath e’er conceived of its beauty,
That awaits the redeemed ones at home;
Be sure, my dear brother, you live up to duty,
For soon our Redeemer will come. [Refrain]

3 Keep working and sing, press onward, my brother,
Till the Savior shall bid you to come;
How sweet it will be then to meet with each other,
When all redeemed singers get home. [Refrain]
