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

1. O come and go with me,
If from sin you would be free;
You will find it good for thee,
Over Jordan.
’Tis a land of corn and wine,
And there’s fruit of every kind;
You will find it is sublime,
Over Jordan.

Over Jordan, over Jordan,
O it is a pleasant place,
For I have the second grace.
Over Jordan’s rolling sand
Into happy Beulah land,
’Tis a pleasant place to live,
Over Jordan. [Refrain

2. Many will not enter in,
For they want to cling to sin,
And their journey won’t begin,
Over Jordan.
And they see the giants there,
For their vision is not clear,
And they will not go for fear,
Over Jordan. [Refrain]

3. Our leader is the Lord,
And we have His precious Word;
We will use it for our sword,
Over Jordan.
So you need not ever fear,
For He’s promised to be near,
And you’ll find Him very dear,
Over Jordan. [Refrain]

4. Now won’t you come and go,
While He’s pleading with you so,
Where the milk and honey flow,
Over Jordan.
If you’ll get the second grace,
You’ll be talking face to face,
While you’re running in the race,
Over Jordan. [Refrain]
