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 voice that comes in my lonely hours
And tenderly speaks to me
Of rest and home in my Father’s house,
Where happy my soul shall be.

Refrain:
I shall have wings, beautiful wings,
I shall have wings some day,—
Bright wings of love from God above
To bear my glad soul away.

2 O I sit and think of those radiant wings,
By faith I behold them now,
And feel the hand of my Saviour laid
So lovingly on my brown. [Refrain]

3 There’s a home for me, there’s a home for me,
My Saviour has told me so,
Where tears and sorrow and pain shall cease
And pleasure eternal flow. [Refrain]

4 O the wings, the wings that I soon shall wear,
And joyfully speed my flight
From toil and care to a mansion fair
Of beauty and endless light. [Refrain]
