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

Representative Text

1 Shall we meet one another again,
Where the sorrows of life shall be o’er?
With immortals forever to reign,
Shall we meet on the glory shore?

We shall meet beyond the river,
When this mortal life is over;
In the glory land forever,
We shall meet one another there.

2 Many loved ones have gone from our sight,
To the home of the pure and the blest;
Shall we meet them again with delight,
In the land of eternal rest? [Refrain]

3 When at last, at the close of the day,
At the brink of the river we stand,
When we pass from the margin away,
Shall we meet in the glory land? [Refrain]
