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

Say, shall we meet

Representative Text

1 Say, shall we meet, and forever and ever,
Dwell with delight in the land of the fair—
Meet on the bank of the pure crystal river,
Enter the realms of the blest over there?

Yes, we shall meet, our Saviour to greet,
In that land so bright and fair, over there;
We shall meet and rejoice with our loved ones forever—
O how we long, how we long to be there!

2 Say, shall we find in that fair land immortal,
Those we have cherish'd but lost by the way?
Will they receive us with joy at the portal,
Holy and happy forever and aye? [Refrain]
