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.

Representative Text

1 With mansions of fairness,
And beauty, and rareness,
And streets with a pavement of gold;
Where no one grows weary,
No prospect is dreary,
And no one can ever grow old.

Refrain:
Oh, there is a city, a beautiful city,
Whose builder and maker is God;
A far-away city,
A wonderful city,
The beautiful city of God.

2 Its rivers of gladness
Will banish all sadness,
And sorrow shall vanish away;
The moon shall not lighten,
The sun shall not brighten,
That city by night or by day. [Refrain]

3 But light will be given,
All storm clouds be riven,
From over that city of God;
We’ll view then in wonder,
Through all that may sunder,
The path that in sorrow we trod. [Refrain]

4 No sorrow or sighing,
Nor anguish or dying,
Can shadow the bliss of that home;
And pilgrims who rest there,
Forever are blest there,
Nor yearn in their rapture to roam. [Refrain]
