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

O Beautiful!

Representative Text

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

Refrain:
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]
