We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
