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.

Mansions in Heaven

Representative Text

1 My Savior has gone to prepare me a place,
A home where the saints never die;
I'll reach it some day by abundance of grace,
My home up in heaven beyond the blue sky.

I am going over there, [yes, I'll be there,]
To a mansion bright and fair; [bright and fair]
With my Savior I'll be there, [yes, I'll be there]
And His glory I will share. [I will share.]

2 In John the fourteenth I read with delight,
How Jesus has gone to prepare;
Bright mansions in heav'n, where cometh no night,
O won't it be glory forever up there. [Chorus]

3 He said not to fear, but believe on Him, too,
He's the truth and the life and the way;
And if I'd be faithful He'd bring me safe thro',
And give me a crown at the great judgment day. [Chorus]

4 Those mansions above, I'll see them some day,
If found in the soul-saving grace;
I'm looking for one at the end of the way,
When I'll see the Builder and talk face to face. [Chorus]
