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 reach that royal city,
In that land of fadeless day,
When we pass inside the portal
Where the righteous live for aye,
We shall meet our blessèd loved ones
In that land so blessèd fair,
But the Savior in His beauty
Will be first to greet us there.

Refrain:
Happy meeting that will be,
Glorious greeting we shall see,
When we pass into that city,
In that city bright and fair;
Happy meeting that will be,
Glorious greeting we shall see,
But the Savior in His beauty
Will be first to greet us there.

2 When inside that glorious city
In that land of fadeless day,
We will view with holy rapture
All of those in bright array;
But among the saints and angels
There is none so bright and fair
As the Savior in His beauty,
Who’ll be first to greet us there. [Refrain]

3 When the heav’nly choir assembles,
At the throne they’ll gather round,
Heav’n with praises will be ringing,
Hallelujahs will resound;
But the theme of all the music
In which all shall join and share,
Will be Jesus in His beauty,
Who was first to greet us there. [Refrain]
