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

1 Oh, the time is flying fast,
It will surely end at last,
Then sweetly we’ll be resting in the kingdom;
When the toil of life is o’er,
We’ll meet on the other shore,
Then sweetly we’ll be resting in the kingdom.
In the kingdom, in the kingdom,
Then sweetly we’ll be resting in the kingdom;
When the toil of life is o’er,
We’ll meet on the other shore,
Then sweetly we’ll be resting in the kingdom.

2 Our kind Saviour calls us on,
On to join that happy throng
That now is sweetly resting in the kingdom;
Bright and fair their faces shine,
They have crossed the bound’ry line,
And now are sweetly resting in the kingdom.
In the kingdom, in the kingdom,
And now are sweetly resting in the kingdom;
Bright and fair their faces shine,
They have crossed the bound’ry line,
And now are sweetly resting in the kingdom.

3 When this earth shall pass away,
As the mists before the day,
Then sweetly we’ll be resting in the kingdom;
Then how happy we shall be
When our Saviour’s face we see,
When bright and fair we see him in the kingdom.
In the kingdom, in the kingdom,
When bright and fair we see him in the kingdom;
Then how happy we shall be
When our Saviour’s face we see,
When bright and fair we see him in the kingdom.
