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

They never die up yonder

Representative Text

1 When the everlasting morning on this weary earth shall dawn,
And we hear the trumpet sounding loud and clear;
When the angels from the battlements of heaven shout for joy;
We will greet the friends we loved and cherished here.

For they never die up yonder,
There with joy they stand arrayed;
No, they never die up yonder,
Jesus all the debt has paid.

2 By the angel bands attended, up along the starry way
They have journey’d where the surges swell no more;
They have left their earthly temple for a house not made with hands;
They are living on the peaceful Eden shore. [Refrain]

3 We shall know them by the lovelight that still lingers in their eyes,
Tho’ their faces bright with heaven’s glory shine;
Those who vanished from earth’s portals and were lost a little while
In the summerland of Paradise divine. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
