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

Happy songland

Representative Text

1 Song-land fair,
Over there,
Free from sorrow, free from care;
Angels bright,
Robed in white,
Dwell in peace and pure delight;
By and by,
Shadows nigh,
Resting comes in home on high;
We shall join in praises there,
In that happy Song-land fair.

Refrain:
Holy, happy Song-land fair,
Radiant mansions ‘wait us there;
By and by,
Shadows nigh,
Resting comes in home on high;
We shall join in praises there,
In that happy Song-land fair.

2 Toils are o’er,
Near the shore,
Near the blessed evermore;
Hand in hand,
Near the strand,
Near the shining Summer Land;
Where we go,
Fountains flow,
In the noontide’s sunny glow;
Joyful ransomed souls are there,
In that happy Song-land fair. [Refrain]
