We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
