Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Some sweet day we’ll meet above,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
In that home where all is love,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

Refrain:
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day,
In that home so bright and fair,
Mother dear, we’ll meet you there,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

2 Oh, the joys of heav’n we’ll share,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Meet and greet our loved ones there,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]

3 Mists and clouds will clear away,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Then we’ll dwell with Christ for aye,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]
