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’s a beautiful heavenly country,
And a mansion so bright and fair;
There’s a welcome awaiting the faithful,
Who with patience their burdens bear.

Fair land of heaven thy praises we sing,
Telling the story of Jesus our King;
Beautiful country, heavenly country,
There we shall dwell with the ransom’d throng.

2 In that beautiful heavenly country,
Where we never shall weep nor sigh;
We shall sing of our blessed Redeemer,
While the endless ages roll by. [Refrain]

3 To that beautiful heavenly country,
We know that some day we’ll go;
We shall rest in the arms of the Saviour,
No more of sorrow we’ll know. [Refrain]
