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.

Representative Text

1 When the golden gates are opened,
And I enter in to rest,
And behold the blessed Savior,
And am folded to His breast—

Refrain:
That will be glory,
That will be glory,
That will be glory with my Savior King;
That will be glory,
That will be glory,
That will be glory while we shout and sing.

2 When this weary way has ended,
With its conflict sharp and long,
And the peace and joy of heaven
Fills the heart and tunes the song— [Refrain]

3 Then the promised rest and glory
In fruition shall be known,
And the long imagined splendor
Into knowledge shall have grown. [Refrain]

4 O, but ‘tis the One in glory
It will be so good to meet,
And to cast my crown before Him
Down at His beloved feet. [Refrain]

5 And forever bear the likeness
Of the Lord who died for me,
And forever join the chorus
Of the ransomed and the free. [Refrain]
