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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 No wishful glances now I cast
Tow’rd Canaan’s happy shore,
For I have reached that land of rest,
To wander never more.

I’m over in the Promised Land,
And marching on with Joshua’s band;
My life is hid with Christ in God,
I’m sanctified, O praise the Lord!

2 Old Jordan’s waves now roll behind,
The sky is clear above,
And all along the way I find
The joys of “perfect love.” [Refrain]

3 On ev’ry side sweet lilies nod,
Inviting me to stay;
The birds, the rills, all sing of God;
O brother, come this way! [Refrain]

4 In Beulah’s vale rich fruits abound;
And milk and honey flow;
Within the soil rare gems are found,
And costly spices grow. [Refrain]

5 When giants high above me tow’r,
And boast of mighty strength,
Faith grasps her “two-edged sword” of pow’r,
And lays them out their length. [Refrain]

6 Here Jesus comes and whispers low
His sweetest words of love,
And bids me pray, and work, and grow,
Till called to joys above. [Refrain]
