Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

The beautiful world

Full Text

1. There's beauty in the sunshine,
There's beauty in the showers,
There's beauty in the wildwood,
There's beauty in the flowers;
The valley and the mountain,
The ocean and the plain,
In beauty robed entrance the heart,
And every sense enchain.

2. But there's a world of promise
More beautiful and pure,
Where all that's bright and lovely
Forever shall endure;
No angry storms assail it,
No blast, no sickly blight,
No chilling winds, no burning heat,
No dark and dreary night.

3. One season bland and vernal
Shall bless that hallowed ground,
And changeless and eternal
Shall beauty smile around;
From hunger, thirst, and weakness,
The ransomed souls are free,
They drink the stream and pluck the fruit
Of immortality.
