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

Representative Text

1 When after all our work is done,
And we our earthly race have run,
When life immortal has begun,
Joy’ll come at last.
Ah, yes, when time for each is o’er,
When suns shall rise and set no more,
When we have joined those gone before,
Death’s portal passed.

At last, at last, oh, blessed thought,
These words we oft repeat,
At last we’ll lay our trophies down,
At our Redeemer’s feet.

2 In Beulah land that lies along
That unseen shore for which we long,
There we shall join the angel throng,
At heavens gate.
And we shall be a welcome guest,
Of him who gives the weary rest,
And we’ll be greeted by the blest,
Who for us wait. [Refrain]

3 There in those mansions up above,
In that pure realm of fadeless love,
’Tis there we evermore shall rove,
In perfect peace.
A diadem we there shall wear,
And all of heaven’s glory share,
Within that country, oh, so fair,
Where joys ne’er cease. [Refrain]
