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,
Harry Plantinga

1 There’s a boat that waits for me,
Moored beside a sunny shore;
It will bear me ’cross the sea,
When the boatman plies his oar.

Refrain:
When the boatman plies the oar,
When the boatman plies the oar,
When the bark glides o’er the sea,
When I reach the golden strand,
When I reach the golden strand,
Christ will wait to welcome me.

2 There’s a crown that waits for me,
In that kingdom vast and grand;
There’s a seat reserved for me,
Over there at God’s right hand. [Refrain]

3 There’s a harp that waits for me,
Strung by hands divinely fair;
Oh, the glories I shall see!
Oh, the blessings I shall share! [Refrain]
