We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

A building not made with hands

Representative Text

1 They tell me there's a home on high,
'Tis in fair Beaulah land;
A home so far beyond the sky,
Tis a building not made with hands.

Lord keep me day by day,
In the pure and perfect way;
I want to live some day
In a building not made with hands.

2 They say the joy can ne'er be told
Of saint and angel bands;
They say the streets are paved with gold,
In the city not made with hands. [Refrain]

3 I have some kindred gone before,
Around God's throne they stand;
I'm told they'll dwell for evermore
In a building not made with hands. [Refrain]

4 Be sure your sins are now forgiven,
And for Christ take a stand;
Be sure you have your name in heaven,
And a building not made with hands. [Refrain]
