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.

Refrain:
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]
