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 land far away where the long summer day,
Ever clothed with a splendor so fair,
’Tis a mansion of rest for the good and the blest,
And we’ll meet all the loved over there.

Refrain:
Over there, over there,
We shall meet with the pure and the fair;
Over there, over there,
We shall meet in that home over there.

2 In that land of the blest with its glories confessed,
We shall rest with our Savior above;
In that bright sunny clime as the stars we shall shine,
Crowned with glory like angels of love. [Refrain]

3 Oh! that land fair and bright, ’tis a home of delight,
’Tis a home where we’ll rest evermore;
With a robe and a crown in that home of renown
We shall sing with the loved gone before. [Refrain]
