Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 O blessed tho’t sweet rest will come,
Some glad day after while;
When all our earthly toil is done,
There’ll come a glad day after while.

Refrain:
O after while, after while
There’ll come a glad day after while,
There’ll come a glad day after while.

2 These heavy burdens we’ll lay down,
Some glad day after while;
When we receive our heav’nly crown,
There’ll come a glad day after while. [Refrain]

3 Our suff’ring too will all be past,
Some glad day after while;
When we shall find sweet rest at last,
There’ll come a glad day after while. [Refrain]

4 All war and strife will soon be o’er,
Some glad day after while;
We’ll find sweet peace on heaven’s shore,
There’ll come a glad day after while. [Refrain]
