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.

Representative Text

1 There is a Gate of shining pearl,
Beyond the silent river,
And happy souls who enter there,
Shall dwell with Christ forever.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
That gate is open now for me?
For me, for me?
Stands open now for me?

2, There is a land whose radiant sky
With constant light is glowing;
And all along its verdant shore,
The tide of joy is flowing.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
A land so pure and bright for me?
For me, for me?
So pure and bright for me?

3 To every soldier of the Cross,
The prospect, oh, how cheering;
There is a crown laid up for those
Who wait our Lord's appearing.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
There is a crown laid up for me?
For me, for me?
A crown laid up for me?

4 The blood of him who died for all—
Oh, wondrous, wondrous story!
His blood that cleanseth every sin,
Secures that land of glory.

Amazing love! oh, can it be
His blood secures that land for me?
For me, for me?
Secures that land for me?
