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.

Beyond the Swelling Flood

Representative Text

1 Yes, we shall meet beyond the flood,
In robes made white thro’ Jesus’ blood,
And hold sweet converse, free from pain,
Nor ever fear to part again,
Beyond the swelling flood!

Beyond the swelling flood,
Beyond the swelling flood,
Beyond the swelling flood,
We’ll meet to part no more;
We’ll meet to part no more;
We’ll meet to part no more,
We’ll meet to part no more,
Beyond the swelling flood.

2 I care not now what ills may come,
Since hope sustains this thought of home,
And spirit voices softly say,
“Thy God shall wipe all tears away,
Beyond the swelling flood!” [Chorus]

3 That meeting, O how sweetly dear!
\What sounds shall greet the list’ning ear!
What thrills of rapture wake the soul
As back those golden gates shall roll,
Beyond the swelling flood! [Chorus]

4 Dear Saviour, guide my willing feet,
That I may have that joy complete;
And live to praise through endless day
The love that dries all tears away,
Beyond the swelling flood! [Chorus]
