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.

1 'Way in heaven I 'll take my seat,
I have a right to the tree of life;
And cast my crown at Jesus' feet,
I have a right to the tree of life.

Chorus:
I wish I was there,
I wish I was there,
I wish I was there,—
I have a right to the tree of life.

2 There 's no dying there,
I have a right to the tree of life;
There 's no dying there.
I have a right to the tree of life. [Chorus]

3 We 'll shout all the way
I have a right to the tree of life;
We 'll shout all the way
I have a right to the tree of life. [Chorus]
