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 sweet day I shall enter a place,
When the work of my life shall be done;
A place that is filled with His marvelous grace,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun.

I shall dwell in the Land of Delight
When my journey on earth has been run;
In the land where there cometh no sorrow, no night,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun.

2 Yes, the burdens of life can be borne,
When I think of the prize to be won;
Of the beautiful robe and the crown to be worn,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]

3 I can peacefully welcome the night
When the hours of my life shall be run;
It will bring me no grief, but supernal delight
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]

4 O what joy! mortal tongue cannot tell,
With eternity only begun,
One another to meet, with the Savior to dwell,
In the land of the Unsetting Sun. [Refrain]
