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.

Representative Text

1 There is a land of pure delight,
Where we shall be gathered by and by;
Infinite day excludes the night,
Where we shall be gathered by and by.

Refrain:
Over there,
Over there,
O won’t that be glory by and by,
Over there,
Over there,
O won’t that be glory by and by.

2 Its skies are not like earthly skies,
Where we shall be gathered by and by;
It hath no need of sun to rise,
Where we shall be gathered by and by. [Refrain]

3 There rests no shadow, falls no stain,
Where we shall be gathered by and by;
And those long parted meet again,
Where we shall be gathered by and by. [Refrain]

4 Over in that serene above,
Where we shall be gathered by and by;
There we will meet and live with God,
Where we shall be gathered by and by. [Refrain]
