We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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 beyond the silent night
An everlasting day;
‘Tis there we’ll join the “saints in light”
When we are called away.

Beyond the silent night,
We’ll meet the saints in light,
And walk with them in white,
Where all is pure and bright,
Beyond the silent night,
Beyond the silent night.

2 There is a fair and happy land
For those who walk upright,
‘Tis there, ere long, we all shall stand,
Beyond the silent night. [Refrain]

3 The grave is not our final goal;
But all is pure and bright,
Where we shall rest while ages roll,
Beyond the silent night. [Refrain]

4 Oft waves of sorrow here arise;
But what a glorious sight
Looms up before immortal eyes—
Beyond the silent night. [Refrain]

5 We all have friends just over there,
In Jesus’ blood washed white,
Who walk the streets without a care,
Beyond the silent night. [Refrain]

6 When we have fought thro’ storm and strife,
As valiant soldiers fight,
‘Tis then we’ll reach the “tree of life,”
Beyond the silent night. [Refrain]
