We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 Tell me again of that beautiful home
Jesus has gone to prepare,
That we in sorrow no longer may roam
In that blest city up there.

Wonderful story! Wonderful story!
Jesus is coming, coming in glory,
Coming to gather His jewels, His own,
Take them in joy to His beautiful home.

2 Tell me again that no sickness e’er comes
Into that home of the blest,
That He is coming to gather His own,
Take them at last to His rest. [Refrain]

3 Tell me again that His love is the light,
Darkness will never come there;
Day everlasting shall banish the night,
Pleasures shall banish all care. [Refrain]

4 Tell me again that He rose from the dead,
Went to His Father on high,
That He is coming to take us there, too,
In that sweet, sweet By and By. [Refrain]
