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

The Eden of love

Representative Text

1. Oh, when shall I dwell in my Father's bright home,
From sorrow and sin ever free,
With the fair shining angels forever to roam,
And my blessed Redeemer to see?

By and by, by and by,
In that fair Eden home,
In that bright world to come,
We shall meet our blessed Saviour, by and by.

2. Oh, fair are the halls in that palace of song,
And sweetly the ransomed will sing,
As ages of bliss roll their bright tide along
In the home of our Saviour and King. [Refrain]

3. There safe shall I dwell, when life's journey is o'er,
And sing with the loved and the blest;
There dwell with my Saviour and all the redeemed
In that beautiful Eden of rest. [Refrain]
