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 pulse beats low and cheeks grow pale,
And storms of life are fiercely driv’n;
When fairest prospects quickly fail,
How sweet to have a hope in heav’n!

Refrain:
A hope in heav’n,
How sweet to have a hope in heav’n!

2 When friends that seemed most near and dear,
Are from our bosom swiftly riv’n,
And life’s bright joys in gloom appear,
How sweet to have a hope in heav’n! [Refrain]

3 When lone and wand’ring far from home,
No kind relief to us is giv’n,
Oh, what would then of us become,
If we had not a hope in heav’n? [Refrain]

4 And when the end is drawing nigh,
Of life thro’ which we long have striv’n,
And we at last must droop and die,
How sweet to have a hope in heav’n! [Refrain]
