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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Savior, while on earth I tarry,
Tune my heart to sing thy praise;
While thro’ faith there is within me,
Hope of life thro’ endless days.

Refrain:
How we shall sing, how we shall sing,
Of our dear Redeemer’s love,
How we shall sing, how we shall sing,
When we reach that home above.

2 Long I wandered heavy laden,
Toil and care my soul oppressed;
Till I heard thy sweet voice saying:
“Come to me, I’ll give thee rest.” [Refrain]

3 Now rejoice, my soul, with gladness,
Soon I’ll reach that happy shore;
And with saints and angels joining,
Sing his praise for evermore. [Refrain]
