Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

1 The sun will never set
In Summerland;
No eyes with tears are wet
In Summerland;
No shades of dark’ning night
Will shut the view from sight,
Nor e’er becloud the light,
In Summerland.

2 No one will lose the way
In Summerland;
Nor ever go astray
In Summerland;
No mountain hard to climb,
Yet all is grand, sublime,
With endless summer clime,
In Summerland.

3 No death is ever known
In Summerland;
For life is on the throne
In Summerland;
No mourning for the dead,
No heavy hearts, like lead,
But endless joy instead,
In Summerland.
