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,

1 When I have ended my pilgrimage here,
When the glad songs of the ransomed I hear;
If I may look on my Saviour so dear,
That will be heaven enough for me.

Refrain:
That will be heaven enough for me,
When I my Saviour and King shall see;
Transformed by His grace I shall look on His face,
That will be heaven enough for me.

2 When all life’s bridges at last have been spanned,
When I shall reach immortality land;
If by the throne of my Lord I may stand,
That will be heaven enough for me. [Refrain]

3 When in that city whose streets are pure gold,
I shall rejoice while the ages unfold;
If I the face of my King shall behold,
That will be heaven enough for me. [Refrain]

4 There in that homeland of peace I shall rest,
Where naught shall enter to grieve nor molest;
Close to my Lord I shall dwell and be blest,
That will be heaven enough for me. [Refrain]
