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 from the scenes of earth we rise,
To find our home beyond the skies,
What visions then shall greet our eyes,
When we shall be with Jesus!

Refrain
To be with Jesus, O how sweet!
With saints and angels at His feet,
With songs we shall each other greet,
And ever be with Jesus.

2. The storms of life will all be o’er,
Our souls be tempest tossed no more,
When we have reached the golden shore,
For we shall be with Jesus. [Refrain]

3. Redeemed from sin and saved by grace,
We shall behold His blessèd face,
The wonders of His love to trace,
As we shall be with Jesus. [Refrain]

4. With Him in glory e’er to stay,
Where founts of living waters play,
And sorrow’s tears are wiped away,
Forevermore with Jesus. [Refrain]
