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.

Representative Text

1. Some blessèd day my Lord will call,
And with a joyous heart I’ll go
Again to Him, my All in All,
Who died for me, and loved me so.

2. Some blessèd day life’s lesson learned,
And I shall call again to Thee,
To whom my heart has ever turned,
The Christ who gave His all for me.

3. Some blessèd day at eventide
When shadows creep before the night
The pearly gates will open wide,
And I shall pass into the light.
