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

Full Text

1 Soon we'll see the golden city,
Soon we'll hear the angels sing,
And the harps attuned by seraphs,
Loud will make the heavens ring.

Chorus:
We will walk thro' the streets of the city,
With the friends we have lov'd by our side,
We shall sit by the banks of the river,
In that land we shall ever abide.

2 Blessed city, home of angels,
With its streets all paved with gold,
Pearly gates and living fountains,
Where the pleasures ne'er grow old. [Chorus]

3 Jesus' glory ever shining,
Trees of life in grandeur stand,
Clouds of love with silver lining,
In that happy Eden land. [Chorus]

4 Friends and kindred who have loved us,
Hearts that often beat as one,
There shall join the glorious number,
And shall sing around the throne. [Chorus]
