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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

The faithful of the ages past

Representative Text

1. The faithful of the ages past
Are sleeping in the dust;
The trump of God shall sound at last
And summons them and us
To meet our Lord with his reward:
Those better things for us.

Chorus:
Better things for us,
Better things for us,
Thy Word hath decided that God hath provided
Some better things for us.

2. We've laid our treasures safely up
Secure from moth and rust,
And wait the day with flowing cup,
Denying fleshly lust;
When from above he'll come in love
With better things for us. [Chorus]

3. The day is near, O joyful tho't,
The end of faith and trust,
When all his saints with battles fought,
Shall waken from the dust,
At Christ's command, take from his hand
Those better things for us. [Chorus]
