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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O heaven is where no secret dread

O heaven is where no secret dread

Author: Briggs
Published in 4 hymnals

Full Text

O, heaven is where no secret dread
May haunt us by its power;
Where from the past no gloom is shed
Upon the present hour.

And there the living waters flow
Along the radiant shore;
The soul, now wandering here, shall know
Its burning thirst no more.

The burden of the stranger’s heart,
Which here unknown we bear,
Like the night-shadow shall depart
With our first wakening there.

And, borne on eagle’s wings afar,
Free thought shall claim its dower,
From every sphere, from every star,
Of glory and of power.
