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.

Representative Text

1 Oh, what a meeting that will be
In that sweet time to come,
When we shall gain the victory,
And all the saints get home.

Home, home,
The saints' eternal home,
Oh, what a meeting that will be,
When all the saints get home.

2 Oh, what a shout will fill the air
When we the King behold,
Who waits to bid us welcome there
Within His blessed fold. [Chorus}

3 Oh, how the upper courts will ring
When we our loved ones greet,
In that bright home where angels sing,
And all the ransomed meet. [Chorus]

4 When close to Jesus, the divine,
We stand among the throng,
Oh, what ecstatic bliss, to join
In the redemption song. [Chorus]

5 The battle o'er, the cross laid down,
And safe across the flood,
With spotless robes, and shining crowns,
All thro' the precious blood. [Chorus]
