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 mansion for me, and its gleams I see
In the visions of faith bright and clear;
This my title shall be, Jesus died for me,
And his word of assurance I hear.

Refrain:
All glory to the Lamb! hear the ransomed sweetly sing
On earth and in heaven above;
This my theme shall ever be, Jesus died for you and me;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord for his love!

2 I will cling to his hand till I reach that land,—
He will never forsake me, I know,—
Till with him I shall stand on the golden strand,
Where the bright, crystal streams ever flow. [Refrain]

3 They are waiting up there, happy saints who wear
Linen robes washed in blood pure and white;
To that home blest and fair, far beyond compare,
I am hasting to share their delight. [Refrain]

4 While I walk here below he is saying now,
Be thou faithful, my child, for awhile;
Oh, what joy I shall know with the saved to bow,
When I rest evermore in his smile. [Refrain]

5 At the sight of my King a new song I’ll sing;
There I nevermore silent will be;
Close to joy’s blessed spring I will fold my wing,
For he saved, yes, he saved even me. [Refrain]
