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 Sunlit sea what mem’ries golden,
Hover round thy tranquil shore;
Through the ages words so olden,
Bring us life forever more!

Blessed shore, where once the Saviour trod,
Son of Man and yet the Son of God;
Hallowed shall Thy vision be,
O blessed sunlit shore of Galilee.

2 Bright thy waves thy billows swelling,
O’er thee bends an azure sky;
As the Saviour, earth is telling,
Tidings sweet from heav’n on high. [Refrain]

3 We recall with joy thy story,
Mem’ries blest about thee twine;
For the King who left His glory,
Is our Saviour Lord divine. [Refrain]
