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.
1 Sweet surprises wait the christian,
In the fathers home on high;
Music, earthly ear hath heard not,
Scenes, too bright for mortal eye.
Let us hear the Spirit, whisp'ring
Of the heav'nly joys, to come;
Live by faith in him who saved us,
Till we reach that glorious home.
2 Loftiest flights of human fancy,
Cannot grasp a single trace;
Of the heav'n pervading glory,
Beaming from the Savior's face. [Chorus]
3 Brighter than the piercing sun-rays,
Clearer than the moon's pure light,
Is the glory, grand, eternal,
Of that land that knows no night. [Chorus]Source: Crowning Glory No. 1: a choice collection of gospel hymns #177
