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

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.
