Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Say, dear brother, will you meet me in that land so bright and fair,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
Where the saints of countless ages, and the white-robed angels are?
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!

Refrain:
Will you meet me over there?
Will you meet me over there?
Will you meet me in that city bright and fair?
Yes, dear brother, we will meet and sing together there on high
And be happy and be happy over there!

2 We will meet our friends and loved ones, at our Father’s snow-white throne,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
Where no sickness, pain or sorrow, and sad partings never come?
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there! [Refrain]

3 We will meet our blessed Saviour, in that land of endless light,
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there!
We will sing and shout forever, in those mansions fair and bright!
We’ll be happy, we’ll be happy over there! [Refrain]
