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, 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 bright, happy home over yonder,
On the bright eternal shore;
Where the saints shall dwell with Jesus,
All the glad for ever more.

We’ll meet with our Savior in the morning,
That Savior full of love;
We’ll dwell with our King,
And forevermore we’ll sing
In that happy home above.

2. There’s a bright, happy home over yonder,
Where the crystal waters glide;
Where the tree of life forever,
Blooms by the silver tide. [Refrain]

3. There’s a bright, happy home over yonder,
Where the song shall never cease;
Where the saints shall dwell forever
With the Lord in perfect peace. [Refrain]
