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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When life’s trials all are o’er,
I shall reach the golden shore,
And behold the wonders of that city fair;
Oh, what joy will then be mine
When I see His face divine,
By whose grace alone I find an entrance there.

Oh, what glory, wondrous glory,
My Redeemer’s face to see!
Oh, what glory, wondrous glory,
His to be eternally!

2 Though I cannot understand
All that God for me hath planned,
Yet I know He ever sendeth what is best;
So I’ll wait and work and pray,
Simply trusting all the way,
Till He calls me home to dwell among the blest. [Refrain]

3 When I reach that land above,
In the shining realms of love,
And the veil is lifted from my wond’ring eyes,
What so darkly now I see,
Then will be revealed to me,
And with joy I’ll greet each glad and new surprise. [Refrain]

4 When I cross the swelling tide,
With My Saviour to abide
Where the ransomed host forevermore shall dwell,
Through eternity’s bright days,
In an endless song of praise,
Of His love and mercy I will ever tell. [Refrain]
