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 Hymnary.org, 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

Full 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]
