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 Somewhere the sun is brightly beaming,
Tho’ tis hidden from your view,
Somewhere the light of hope is gleaming,
Gleaming bright for you.

Then trust in God thro’ all thy days,
Fear not for He is by the side,
He’ll lead thee thro’ life’s devious ways,
He will guide where no storms betide.

2 Somewhere the Saviour stands to greet you,
Yonder in a brighter land,
Somewhere your loved ones long to meet you,
On the Jordan’s strand. [Refrain]

3 Somewhere there’s life and love and gladness,
Jesus is not far away,
Somewhere we’ll meet, where is no sadness,
Ever there to stay. [Refrain]

4 Somewhere, without the fold you’re straying,
Straying from the Saviour’s home,
Somewhere, a heart for you is praying,
Rest, and cease to roam. [Refrain]

5 Somewhere within the world you’re straying,
In a world that’s ever cold,
Somewhere the precious step delaying,
Enter now the fold. [Refrain]
