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

Representative Text

1 Over the River of Jordan we’ll meet,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Loved ones long gone on before we shall greet,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Ties of affection are broken no more,
Life is a treasure sublime on the shore,
Angelic bands wait to welcome us o’er,
In the beautiful by-and-by.

2 Joy will illumine each step of our way,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Darkness will melt in the brightness of day,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Yes, far away in the city of gold.
Teeming with pleasures to mortals untold,
We shall the face of our Saviour behold,
In the beautiful by-and-by.

3 Gladly we’ll join the sweet strains of the blest,
In the beautiful by-and-by;
Gladly we’ll enter the heavenly rest,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
Far from the shadows that darken this land,
We shall be one of a glorified band,
Led by the Father’s own bountiful hand,
In the beautiful by-and-by.
