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 shall meet in that beautiful land,
On the banks of the bright golden shore,
And with all the redeemed spirit-band,
There with Jesus to reign ever more

In a bright, happy home, we shall meet,
In that beautiful, beautiful land,
In a bright, happy home we shall meet,
In that beautiful, beautiful land.

2 Over there on the bright azure plains,
Where the river of life sweetly flows;
For the Saviour eternally reigns,
And the beautiful gates never close. [Chorus]

3 Blessed Jesus has gone to prepare
Us a crown that is brighter than day;
Then forever we’ll dwell with Him there,
And His hand shall wipe all tears away. [Chorus]

4 There no sorrow shall e’er taint the air,
Where God dwells evil never can come;
And no weeping will break on the ear,
When the day of life’s turmoil is done. [Chorus]
