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.

Representative Text

1 There is a home that waits for me,
Where shadows never fall,
Its holy light by faith I see,
And I hear sweet voices call.

Oh, home, true home of my longing soul!
Soon I’ll enter its gates divine,
And while the ages eternal roll
Its glory will on me shine.

2 A-down from heights where angels dwell,
Float winning tones of love,
Amid the toils of earth they tell
Of that resting place above. [Refrain]

3 My heart rejoices as I dream
Of bliss I soon shall know,
Where walls of jasper brightly gleam
And the living waters flow. [Refrain]

4 I look beyond the mists of time
To joys that are to come,
And seek that fair celestial clime
Where I’ll find my soul’s true home. [Refrain]
