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

1 My heart is yearning ever
To reach a place of rest.
Jerusalem,
My happy home,
In Thee my heart shall never
By sin or grief be pressed.
My heart is yearning ever
To reach that city blest.

2 Within its radiant portals
None ever sheds a tear.
God’s city bright
Gives all delight;
No grief nor wail of mortals
Is heard where He is near.
Within its radiant portals
None ever sheds a tear.

3 Their blessèd Lord and Saviour
Doth rule and govern them
In peace and joy,
Without alloy,
For sin can enter never
The new Jerusalem.
Their blessèd Lord and Saviour
Doth rule and govern them.

4 Behold the goal in glory,
Now shining from afar;
O city of
The God of love,
Where no more earthly worry
My happiness shall mar!
Behold the goal in glory,
Now shining from afar!

5 And even I shall conquer
In Jesus’ Name and might;.
Though weak and faint,
Yet as a saint,
I’ll in the haven anchor,
Sweet haven of delight.
Yea, even I shall conquer,
In Jesus’ Name and might.

Amen.
