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 On the other shore they’re waiting,
’Till the last believer comes;
In expectancy they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes.
They are waiting—yes, they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes.
In expectancy they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes.

2 Waiting thro’ the dim long ages,
With increasing joy and love,
Holy prophets, Christian sages,
In their blessèd homes above.
They are waiting—yes, they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes.
Holy prophets, Christian sages,
In their blessèd homes above.

3 Waiting for the new creation,
And the coronation day,
For the final consummation,
And the universal sway.
They are waiting—yes, they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes,
For the final consummation,
And the universal sway.

4 O, what rapture—O, what singing!
When these blissful spirits meet,
As most tenderly they’re clinging,
To the dear Redeemer’s feet.
They are waiting—yes, they’re waiting,
In their bright celestial homes,
As most tenderly they’re clinging,
To the dear Redeemer’s feet.
