We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 When we cross the jasper sea,
When we reach the other shore,
Full of bliss our songs shall be,
Praise to God forevermore.

When we reach the happy shore,
Far across the jasper sea,
We will sing forevermore,
Thro’ a long eternity.

2 With the angels round the throne,
Clothed in splendor we shall stand,
Death and tears are never known,
In that bright and happy land. [Refrain]

3 Parting days will never come,
Bright our lot will ever be,
When we reach our heav’nly home,
Far across the jasper sea. [Refrain]
