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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Where life’s crystal stream doth flow,
And the tree of life doth bloom,
Where no chilling frost can fall
On flow’rs that sweetly bloom;
Where the glory of the Lord
Shines thro’ all the cloudless skies,
There, as endless ages roll,
Shall be no more good-byes.

No more good-byes,
No more good-byes,
O blessed thought,
No more good-byes;
‘Midst the glory of the Lord,
In that home beyond the skies,
Where the endless ages roll,
Shall be no more good-byes. [Refrain]

2 There the good again shall meet,
Who have clasped the parting hand;
Fathers, mothers, children dear
Around the throne shall stand;
There no tempest e’er shall blow,
There no dismal cloud arise,
And in that eternal home
Shall be no more good-byes. [Refrain]

3 Where no signs of age are seen,
And they never sorrow more,
Where no sickness e’er can come,
Where death has lost his pow’r,
Where they feel no weight of care,
And no tears bedim the eyes;
All the good shall meet again,
And speak no more good-byes. [Refrain]
