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,

1 There’s a beautiful land on high,
To its glories I fain would fly,
When by sorrow pressed down,
I long for my crown,
In that beautiful land on high.

Refrain:
In that beautiful land I’ll be
From earth and its cares set free;
My Jesus is there, He’s gone to prepare
A place in that land for me.

2 There’s a beautiful land on high,
And my kindred its bliss enjoy;
Methinks I now see how they’re waiting for me,
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]

3 There’s a beautiful land on high,
And though here I oft weep and sigh,
My Jesus hath said that no tears shall be shed
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]

4 There’s a beautiful land on high,
Where we never shall say, “Goodbye”;
When over the river we’re happy for ever
In that beautiful land on high. [Refrain]
