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 walk the realms of glory,
Where eternal beauty reigns,
There with seraph hosts unnumbered
Join the grand, immortal strains.

Refrain:
We shall walk the realms of glory,
With the loved ones gone before,
We shall sing the sweet, old story,
Over on the other shore.

2 We shall walk the realms of glory,
With the blood-washed, mighty throng,
We shall join the angel harpers
In their everlasting song. [Refrain]

3 We shall walk the realms of glory,
And by Jesus’ side sit down;
Clad no more in robes of sorrow,
We shall wear a fadeless crown. [Refrain]

4 We shall walk the realms of glory,
Where no tears can ever come,
Where the sunlight is not needed,
In that sweet eternal home. [Refrain]
