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.

Representative Text

1 There is love, true love, in the heav'nly home,
Many dear ones there have gone,
To be free from care, here no more to roam,
They have joined that happy throng.

There is love, there is rest, there is peace, there is joy,
In that land of song, where the loved have gone,
There is love, rest, peace and joy.

2 There is rest, sweet rest, in the home of God;
'Tis the rest that Christ doth give,
To the souls who trust in his precious blood,
They forevermore shall live. [Chorus]

3 There is peace, sweet peace, in the home above;
For we'll know no heartbreaks there;
Sorrow ne'er shall come, 'tis a home of love,
Of that peace we all may share. [Chorus]

4 There is joy, glad joy, in the land of song,
For in heav'n we all shall sing;
We are nearing home soon to join the throng,
In the presence of our King. [Chorus]
