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

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]
