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 rest for our pilgrim feet,
When the journey of life is o’er,
On the mountain of God where His people shall stand,
And all praise Him for evermore.

2 There’s a home for the pure in heart,
And its portals are bright and fair;
There are garments made white in the blood of the Lamb,
And a crown for the cross we bear.

3 We must work till the Master comes,
We must watch, for the hour draws near;
We must pray, and not faint, while rejoicing in hope
And we’ll wait till His voice we hear.

4 There is rest, and that rest is sure;
It is promised twill soon be ours;
In a beautiful land by the River of Life,
In a garden of fadeless flowers.
