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 tide of that jasper sea,
Softly a sweet voice is calling to me;
Loving and tender, beseeching its tone,
Dearly beloved, O why longer roam?

Refrain:
Calling, calling, yes, calling for me,
Over the tide of that jasper sea;
Calling, calling, yes, calling for me,
Over the tide of that jasper sea.

2 Over the tide of that jasper sea,
Softly the accents are pleading with me;
Pleading so gently in musical tone,
Dearly beloved, O why longer roam? [Refrain]

3 Over the tide of that jasper sea,
Cometh a vision of beauty to me;
Angels are beckoning a-down from the dome,
Dearly beloved, O why longer roam? [Refrain]
