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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 No sorrow there in yonder clime,
Beyond the troubled waves of time;
No dreary nights nor weeping eyes,
No aching hearts, nor broken ties.

O perfect rest, O calm repose,
Where life's clear stream in beauty flows!
And we can sing, without a care,
No sorrow there, no sorrow there.

2 Ah, who would dwell forever here,
Away from those we hold so dear—
Away from Him whose wondrous love
Prepares for us a home above? [Refrain]

3 A little while our watch to keep,
A little while to wake and sleep,
To bear the cross, endure the pain—
And then with Christ forever reign. [Refrain]
