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

When my trials here are over

Representative Text

1 When my trials here are over and I lay my burden down,
And embark upon the waters of death’s sea;
I shall see beyond its billows souls of ransomed saints on high,
Waving palms of victory.

Waving palms of victory,
Singing songs of jubilee;
What a meeting and a greeting,
When my lov’d ones I shall see,
Waving palms of victory.

2 I shall join the host unnumbered, who around the throne of God
Sing his praises thro’ a glad eternity;
I shall wear a robe of glory and shall sing a song of praise,
Waving palms of victory. [Refrain]

3 Now by faith I see my loved ones who have passed the swelling tide,
And are praising him, the Lamb of Calvary;
They are happy in his presence, and are looking, now, for me,
Waving palms of victory. [Refrain]

4 O the glory of that meeting, when the hands shall clasp again,
And from earth and all its sorrows we are free!
We shall dwell with Christ forever in that happy, golden land,
Waving palms of victory. [Refrain]
