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.
1 There is a land that lies afar,
Where grief is all unknown;
A land where-in the angels sing
Around the heav’nly throne.
O ‘twill be sweet when we shall meet
Upon that distant shore,
Where-on the glorious sun ne’er sets,
But shines for evermore,
But shines for evermore.
2 We are but pilgrims on the earth
And brief our sojourn here:
But well we know, beyond this vale
There is a brighter sphere. [Refrain]
3 There is a realm of boundless love,
A goal for hearts distrest,
Where all may find endless years
A home among the blest. [Refrain]Source: Gospel Hymns No. 6 #136
