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’ll be something in Heaven for children to do,
None are idle in that blessèd land.
There’ll be loves for the heart,
There’ll be thoughts for the mind,
And employment for each little hand.

There’ll be something to do;
There’ll be something to do;
There’ll be something for children to do;
On the bright shining shore,
Where there’s joy evermore,
There’ll be something for children to do.

2 There’ll be lessons to learn of the wisdom of God,
As they wander the green meadows o’er;
And they’ll have for their teachers in that blest abode,
All the good that have gone there before. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be errands of love from the meadows above,
To the dear ones that linger below;
And it may be our Father the children will send
To be angels of mercy in woe. [Refrain]
