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!

Chorus:
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]
