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

The new, over there

They have reached the sunny shore

Representative Text

1 They have reach’d the sunny shore,
And will never hunger more,
All their grief and pains are o’er,
Over there;
And they need no lamp by night,
For their day is always bright,
And their Saviour is their light,
Over there.

Over there, over there,
They can never know a fear,
Over there;
All their streets are shining gold,
And their glory is untold,
‘Tis the Saviour’s blissful fold,
Over there.

2 Now they feel no chilling blast,
For their winter time is past,
And their summers always last,
Over there;
They can never know a fear,
For the Saviour’s always near,
And with them is endless cheer,
Over there. [Refrain]

3 They have fought the weary fight,
Jesus sav’d them by his might,
Now they dwell with him in light,
Over there;
Soon we’ll reach the shining strand,
But we’ll wait our Lord’s command,
‘Till we see his beck’ning hand,
Over there. [Refrain]
