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’ll sing of the statutes divine,
Whilst pilgrims, lest here we despond;
But we’ll sing the new song
Of the angelic throng
When we meet in the city beyond.
When we both, you and I,
Having passed thro’ the gate,
Shall meet in the city beyond.

Refrain
When we meet in the beautiful city beyond,
We will sing the new song
Of the angelic throng
In the beautiful city beyond.

2. How blessèd as children and heirs
To enter that mansion above,
Where the souls of the blest
Are forever at rest,
In the bosom of infinite love!
When the ransomed of earth,
Having passed thro’ the gate,
Shall meet in the city above. [Refrain]

3. And whether we bear to that land
Heart sorrows or memories fond,
Shall their purpose be seen,
With no shadow between,
When we meet in the city beyond.
When the children of grace,
Having passed thro’ the gate,
Shall meet in the city beyond. [Refrain]

4. Before they shall call He will hear,
And ere they cease speaking respond,
While the angels await
To throw open the gate
That leads to the city beyond.
For the numberless host
That shall sweep thro’ the gate,
That leads to the city beyond. [Refrain]
