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.

Representative Text

1. Over the river they call me,
Friends that are dear to my heart;
Soon shall I meet them in glory,
Never, no never to part.

Refrain
Over the river to Eden,
Home to their dwelling so fair;
Angels will carry me safely.
Jesus will welcome me there.

2. Over the river they call me,
Hark, ’tis their voices I hear,
Borne on the wings of the twilight,
Murmuring softly and clear. [Refrain]

3. Over the river, how lovely,
There is no sorrow nor night;
There they are walking with Jesus,
Clothed in His garment of light. [Refrain]

4. Over the river they call me,
Watching with glad, beaming eyes;
Over the river I’m coming,
Joyful my spirit replies. [Refrain]
