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 place called heaven,
It is hidden above the bright blue,
Where the good, who from earth-ties are riven,
Live and love and eternity thro’.

Above the bright blue, the beautiful blue,
Jesus is waiting for me and for you;
Heaven is there, not far from our sight,
Beautiful city of light.

2 This land of sweet rest awaits us,
Some day it will break on our view,
‘Tis promised by Christ the Redeemer,
To his followers faithful and true. [Refrain]

3 When he left his beloved disciples,
He said, as he bade them adieu,
“I go to prepare you a mansion,
And soon I’ll be sending for you.” [Refrain]

4 We know not when he shall call us,
Whether soon, the glad summons shall be,
But we know, when we pass o’er the river,
The glory of Jesus we’ll see. [Refrain]
