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

Over yonder

Representative Text

1 What sweet peace we shall have over yonder,
In the land of the saved and the blest,
What a joy shall be ours over yonder,
In the home of eternal rest.

It will be joy when we get over yonder,
Over yonder, over yonder;
It will be joy when we get over yonder,
Over on that golden shore.

2 Oft we long for the voices now silent,
For the touch of some dear loving hand,
When with Jesus we dwell over yonder,
We shall meet on that far off strand. [Refrain]

3 We may have many sorrows and trials,
As the journey of life we pursue,
But amidst all our tears and our sighings,
That blest home over there we view. [Refrain]
