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.

1 Out of the shadow-land into the sunshine,
Cloudless, eternal, that fades not away;
Softly and tenderly Jesus hath called him
Home, where the ransom’d are gath’ring today.

Refrain:
Silently, peacefully, angels have borne him,
Into the beautiful mansions above;
There shall he rest from earth’s toiling for ever,
Safe in the arms of God’s infinite love.

2 Out of the shadow-land, weary and changeful,
Out of the valley of sorrow and night,
Into the rest of the life everlasting,
Into the summer of endless delight. [Refrain]

3 Out of the shadow-land, over life’s ocean,
Into the rapture and joy of the Lord,
Safe in the Father’s house, welcom’d by angels,
His the bright crown and eternal reward. [Refrain]

Sankey, Ira David, was born in Edinburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1840, of Methodist parents.

Four years afterwards he became the Superintendent of a large Sunday School in which he commenced his career of singing sacred songs and solos. Mr. Moody met with him and heard him sing at the International Convention of the Young Men's Christian Association, at Indianapolis, and through Mr. Moody's persuasion he joined him in his work at Chicago.
