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.

Representative Text

1. We may sing sweet songs in Heaven
When the crown of gold is won,
And the harp to us is given
For our earthly work, well done;
We may hear the Shepherd calling
For the feeble lambs astray
In the storm of wrath appalling,
At the coming Judgment day.

Refrain
We may meet beyond the river
With the lambs from earth astray;
When we dwell with Christ, life’s Giver,
At the coming Judgment Day.

2. We may sing in Heav’n forever,
With the loving, blood-washed band,
When from charms of earth we sever,
And go up to take the Land:
There, with glory shining o’er us,
We may see the blissful fold;
And the City fair before us,
As we near the gates of gold. [Refrain]

3. In the land of angels singing,
We may join the songs of love;
When the courts of bliss are ringing
With the spirit choir above:
When the Shepherd’s voice is calling
For the precious lambs astray
In the storm of wrath appalling—
Then will come the Judgment Day. [Refrain]
