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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 We shall sing the glad, new song,
Over on the golden shore,
With the holy, happy throng,
When these toiling days are o’er.

We shall sing the glad new song,
We shall sing the glad new song,
We shall sing the glad new song,
Over yonder by and by.

2 We shall learn the joyful strain,
When have passed life’s fleeting days
Since the tender, sweet refrain,
Full of glad thanksgiving praise. [Refrain]

3 Evermore the notes shall rise
Sweet and clear in tones of love,
Blessed anthems of the skies,
Gladd’ning all the realms above. [Refrain]
