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 land, a sunny clime,
The brightest ever seen,
Which lies beyond the shores of time,
Beyond cold Jordan’s stream.

Oh, that land, that happy land,
Far away, far away,
Where the saints in glory stand,
Bright as day, bright as day.

2 Beneath the tree of life’s dense shade
Life’s river floweth by,
And youth and beauty never fade,
For there they never die. [Refrain]

3 I long to reach that land so fair,
My dwelling-place to see;
Among the many mansions there,
Is one prepared for me. [Refrain]
