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

Full Text

1. One by one we’re passing over,
One by one we cross the tide;
Soon we’ll reach the peaceful harbor,
Rest at last on Canaan’s side.

Refrain
Rest at last, when earth is past,
Rest at last on Canaan’s shore;
Rest at last, when earth is past,
With our loved ones gone before.

2. There in that bright land of beauty,
With the loved ones gone before,
We will meet in blest reunion,
Meet again to part no more. [Refrain]

3. Then dispel! thou darkening shadow!
Shine upon us, light above!
Take away the sting of parting,
Bring us soon to those we love. [Refrain]

4. But if we must wait and suffer,
Ease the hurt, and soothe the pain;
Make us know that in the daybreak
We shall see our loved again. [Refrain]
