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’re drifting out to a land unseen;
The mist is hiding its skies serene;
The storms may come, the waves may beat,
Our Pilot guides to safe retreat,
Our pilot guides to safe retreat.

Refrain:
We’re drifting out to the mansions blest,
We’re drifting on to the land of rest,
Sweet rest.

2 We’re drifting out to a land unseen;
The mist is hiding its skies serene;
No sun by day, no moon by night,
But God Himself the light so bright,
But God Himself the light so bright. [Refrain]

3 We’re drifting out to a land unseen;
The mist is hiding its skies serene;
We’ll anchor in that haven fair,
And greet the loved ones gathered there,
And greet the loved ones gathered there. [Refrain]
