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.

Representative Text

1 When the everlasting portals
Shall their golden doors unfold,
We shall see the King in beauty,
Then His glory we’ll behold.

Refrain:
We shall praise with ransom’d powers
Where the angel voices ring,
We shall wear our blood-wash’d garments,
And redemption’s chorus sing.

2 Oh, the mighty, mighty chorus,
How ‘twill thrill in yonder throng,
When we sing the love of Jesus
In the everlasting song. [Refrain]

3 How we’ll glow with joyful rapture
That our praise was half so sweet,
When we dwelt in earthly houses
Where the chosen ones did meet. [Refrain]

4 Praise the Lord with all your living,
In the courts below give praise,
We shall see the King in beauty,
And adore thro’ endless days. [Refrain]
