Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. When this life of ours is o’er,
And its cares oppress no more,
When no more to us its sorrows it can bring,
We each other’s joys may share,
In a happy meeting there,
Over yonder in the palace of the King.

I will meet you, I will greet you,
And forever with the ransomed we shall sing;
Yes I’ll meet you, and I’ll greet you,
Over yonder in the palace of the King.

2. Many friends who’ve gone before,
Over on the other shore,
Lift their happy voices there His praise to sing;
And they beckon us to come—
Join them in their happy home—
Over yonder in the palace of the King. [Refrain]

3. O, what happiness ’twill be,
When we cross the crystal sea,
And the world and all its cares behind us fling;
When we meet our Savior there,
And a crown of glory wear,
Over yonder in the palace of the King. [Refrain]
