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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
