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

The homeland beyond

Full Text

1 There’s a homeland, beyond life’s wide sea,
Where the ransomed forever shall be;
In that home, bright and fair,
There’s no pain, grief, nor care;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee.

Refrain:
There’s a place in that homeland for you,
There’s a place in that homeland for me;
When the journey is o’er,
And we reach that fair shore,
In the homeland forever we’ll be.

2 To that homeland no sorrow can come;
In that homeland no weeping is known;
Loved ones, parted, shall meet;
Life forever be sweet;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee. [Refrain]

3 From that homeland none ever shall stray;
Ships shall never go sailing away;
There is love, home and rest
On the dear Saviour’s breast;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee. [Refrain]
