Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 We shall have a new name in that land,
In that land, that sunny, sunny land,
When we meet the bright angelic band,
In that sunny land.
A new name, a new name we’ll receive up there;
A new name, a new name, all who enter there.

Refrain:
We shall have a new name in that land,
In that land, that sunny, sunny land,
When we meet the bright angelic band,
In that sunny land.

2 We’ll receive it in a pure, white stone,
And no one will know the name therein;
Only unto him who hath ‘tis known,
When we’re free from sin.
A white stone, a white stone we’ll receive up there;
A white stone, a white stone, all who enter there. [Refrain]

3 Don’t you wonder what that name will be,
Sweeter far that aught on earth can be,
We will be quite satisfied when we
Shall that new name know.
I wonder, I wonder what that name will be,
I wonder, I wonder, what he’ll give to me. [Refrain]
