Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There will be a blissful morning when the earthly night has flown,
And the glory-light will all around us lie;
In “Jerusalem, the golden,” only is that splendor known,
And we’ll gather in that city by and by.

Refrain:
We shall gather in that city,
We shall gather in the city built on high, by and by;
O “Jerusalem, the blest,” where the saints with Jesus rest!
We shall gather in that city, by and by.

2 We shall come from ev’ry nation in ways separated wide,
Crossing one by one the darkly flowing stream,
Then upon the shore eternal, just beyond the solemn tide,
We shall meet where tow’ring walls of jasper gleam. [Refrain]

3 We shall gather with redeemed ones wearing garments pure and white,
Chanting with exultant voices vict’ry’s psalm;
O how sweet will be that meeting in the dawn of heaven’s light,
As we sing glad hallelujahs to the Lamb. [Refrain]
