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, 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

Full Text

1. Sometime all sorrows will be o’er,
All earthly care be known no more!
Oh, what rejoicing on the golden shore,
Sometime, sometime soon!

2. Sometime our loved ones we shall greet,
When in the Father’s house we meet
Only to sit forever at His feet,
Sometime, sometime soon!

3. Sometime, when sets at last life’s sun,
Our journey ended, labor done,
Oh, what a crown for ev’ry vict’ry won,
Sometime, sometime soon!

4. Sometime, I know not when ’twill be,
My Lord will come again for me,
Then I shall reign with Him eternally.
Sometime, sometime soon!
