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

Representative Text

1 When the cares of life are ended,
And our harvest days are o’er;
When the veil of time is lifted,
And we meet to part no more,—

There with all the saints in glory,
What a song we there shall sing,
At the feet of our Redeemer,
When our golden sheaves to him we bring.

2 We shall hear the blessed welcome,
When before his throne we bow,
And receive the crown of promise,
That his love is keeping now. [Refrain]

3 In that home of fadeless beauty,
Night and clouds will pass away,
And our eyes will see the splendor
Of a long eternal day. [Refrain]

4 In that home of peerless glory,
Every throb of pain shall cease;
Kindred souls that there were severed,
There shall dwell in perfect peace. [Refrain]
