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

When We All Shall Gather There

Representative Text

1 What a meeting that will be
In the home beyond the sea,
When we all shall gather there;
Singing, shouting on the strand,
As we clasp each other's hand,
When we all shall gather there!

Chorus:
When we all shall gather there
In that home so bright and fair,
What rejoicing in the glory-land,
When we all shall gather there!

2 All our labors will be o'er,
And we'll sorrow nevermore,
When we all shall gather there;
Free from sickness, pain, and tears,
Disappointments, doubts and fears,
When we all shall gather there! [Chorus]

3 All our loved ones we shall meet,
Walk with them the golden streets,
When we all shall gather there;
No more partings there to be,
In that home from sin made free,
When we all shall gather there! [Chorus]

4 Best of all, dear friends, to me,
Is that I my Lord shall see,
When we all shall gather there;
Lean my head upon His breast,
He who saved my soul from death,
When we all shall gather there! [Chorus]
