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 land far beyond the sky,
And Jesus my Savior is there;
He has gone to prepare me a home on high;
Oh! how sweet it will be to be there.

In that beautiful land, beautiful land,
Where the angels, bright angels stand,
Shall we meet,
Shall we meet,
And dwell with the bright, happy band?

2 I have friends who have gone to that land on high,
They are free from sorrow and care,
And I hope I shall meet them above the sky;
Oh! I long, I long to be there. [Refrain]

3 Shall we meet in that beautiful land on high,
And be with the ransomed so fair,
Where the waters of life sweetly murmur by?
Oh! how sweet it will be to be there. [Refrain]
