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 sweet land of rest,
Where the songs of the blest
Ever float on the balmy air;
If to Jesus we yield,
And our pardon is sealed,
We shall join in that song up there.

Hallelujah! we sing to the Lord our king,
Hallelujah! the song we’ll share;
Hallelujah again, with a loud amen,
For the rest that remains up there!

2 In the bright land of song
Stands the pure, happy throng
Near the throne in their robes so fair;
If we follow the Lord
In the way of His Word,
We shall wear a bright robe up there. [Refrain]

3 There are crowns to be giv’n
To the ransomed in Heav’n,
Only victors the crowns may wear;
If we battle with sin,
And the victory we win,
We shall wear a bright crown up there. [Refrain]
