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.

Representative Text

1 We shall reach the river side,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
We shall cross the stormy tide,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
We shall press the sands of gold,
While before our eyes unfold
Heaven’s splendors, yet untold,
Some sweet day, some sweet day.

2 We shall pass inside the gate,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
Peace and plenty for us wait,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
We shall hear the wondrous strain,
Glory to the Lamb that’s slain;
Christ was dead, but lives again,
Some sweet day, some sweet day.

3 We shall meet our lost and own,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
Gath’ring round the great white throne,
Some sweet day, some sweet day;
By the tree of life so fair,
Joy and rapture everywhere;
O the bliss of over there!
Some sweet day, some sweet day.
