Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1.
My friends, I am going a long and tedious journey,
Never to return; I am going a long journey, never to return.
I am going a long journey, Never to return.
(Repeat previous line).
215
Never to return, never to return, never to return;
Never, never never, never, to return;
Fare you well, my friends.
(Repeat previous line twice),
And God grant we may meet together in that world above,
Where trouble shall cease and harmony shall abound,
216
Hark! hark! my dear friends, for death hath called me,
And I must go, and lie down in the cold and silent grave,
Where the mourners cease from mourning, and the prisoner is set free;
Where the rich and poor are both alike;
Fare you well, fare you well, fare you well, fare you well,
Fare you well, my friends.
