Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 When we near the river Jordan,
With its rushing, swelling tide,
Let us put our trust in Jesus as we go;
We shall hear his gentle whisper,
“Fear not, I am by thy side,”
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.

Refrain:
At the crossing over Jordan,
At the crossing he’ll be there;
There’ll be music, there’ll be shouting
Just beyond the swelling tide,
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there.

2 As we cross the river Jordan,
With its flood that none can check,
Then the Saviour’s guiding hand will lead us o’er;
Tho’ the billow’s roar be mighty,
There is nothing we need fear,
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there. [Refrain]

3 We are nearing that dark river
Which we all must cross some day;
But the faithful of the Father need not fear,
For the Saviour there is waiting,
He will safely take us o’er,
At the crossing over Jordan he’ll be there. [Refrain]
