Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

1 Safe upon the heav’nly shore,
Done with pain forevermore,
Weariness and weakness o’er,
Up yonder;
O the calm and quiet rest
On the loving Saviour’s breast;
It is better than earth’s best,
Up yonder.

2 Storms shall never reach us there,
No more sorrow, pain or care,
No more cross for us to bear,
Up yonder;
Gain for them that suffered loss,
Crowns for them that bore the cross,
And a calm for hearts that toss,
Up yonder.

3 Safe upon the heav’nly shore,
Done with sin forevermore,
Weariness and weakness o’er,
Up yonder;
Never more to know a fear,
Never more to shed a tear,
Batter far than ever here,
Up yonder.
