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, 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

Over yonder

Full 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]
