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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

O Beautiful!

Full Text

1 O beautiful that heavenly scene:
That mansion in the sky!
Our Father has prepared for those
Who follow truth and right.

Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ;
The Son of God on high!
Forever we will live with Thee
Nor ever mourn or die!

2 O beautiful for powerful love—
That brought Christ from the grave!
He conquered sin and Satan’s host,
For all He came to save! [Refrain]

3 O beautiful the feet of those
Who eagerly pursue
The zeal of Christ, the Lord of hosts—
And preach the gospel truth! [Refrain]

4 O beautiful the meek and low:
Who seek not their own;
But humbly follow after Christ—
His blessing is their crown! [Refrain]

5 O beautiful, our heavenly home,
Far better than below;
The city not by human hands
Surrounding God’s own throne! [Refrain]
