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. Over the river my loved ones have passed,
Over the beautiful river;
Safe in the mansions of glory at last,
Now they are watching for me.

Refrain
Watching today,
Watching today;
Loved ones are waiting,
Are waiting my coming today.

2. Over the river with Jesus they rest,
Over the beautiful river;
Learning and singing the songs of the blest,
Yet they are watching for me. [Refrain]

3. Over the river that sparkles so clear,
Over the beautiful river;
Oft in the silence their voices I hear,
Still they are watching for me. [Refrain]

4. Over the river, to sever no more,
Over the beautiful river;
Soon I shall meet them on yonder bright shore,
Loved ones now watching for me. [Refrain]
