Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Who shall abide in thy church on earth?
Who shall taste of that heav’nly birth?
Who shall give honor to Jesus our King?
Who with the saints in glory sing?

They that are washed in that fountain of grace,
They shall have part in that heavenly place;
They that to Jesus for pardon have fled,
All that receive him who rose from the dead.

2 Who will tell of the wondrous grace,
Jesus hath shown to this mortal race?
Who the glad tidings of peace shall proclaim,
Joyful tidings in Jesus’ name. [Refrain]

3 Who shall abide in that home above?
Who shall sing of redeeming love?
Who there in glory forever shall stay?
Who upon harps of gold shall play? [Refrain]
