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 Tossed upon life’s stormy sea,
For our home in heaven we sigh;
If to Christ we faithful be,
We shall anchor by and by!
By and by, yes, by and by,
We shall anchor by and by;
Storm-clouds ne’er shall sweep the skies,
When we anchor by and by!

2 In life’s battle sore we fight,
“Help, O Lord!” we oft must cry—
Thro’ Him standing for the right;
We shall triumph by and by!
By and by, yes, by and by,
We shall triumph by and by;
All our deadly foes shall fly,
When we triumph by and by!

3 When this life of toil is past,
And the earthly shadows fly,
Heav’n, our home, we’ll gain at last;
There’ll be glory by and by!
By and by, yes, by and by,
There’ll be glory by and by;
In our blessed Home on high,
There’ll be glory by and by!
