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.
Harry Plantinga

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]
