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.
Harry Plantinga

81. The Pilgrims’ Promise

1 There’s a Friend for friendless pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
A Friend who never changes;
Whose love will never die.
Unlike our friends by nature,
Who change with changing years
This friend is always worthy
The precious name he bears.
This friend is always worthy
The precious name he bears.

2 There’s a rest for weary pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
Who love the blessed Saviour,
And to their Father cry;
A rest from ev’ry trouble,
From sin and hunger free.
There ev’ry weary pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.
There ev’ry weary pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.

3 There’s a home for homeless pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
A home of peace and joy.
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare;
For ev’ry one is happy,
Nor can be happier there.
For ev’ry one is happy,
Nor can be happier there.

4 There’s a crown for faithful pilgrims
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who look to Jesus
Shall wear it by and by;
A crown of brightest glory,
Which he shall sure bestow,
On all who love the Saviour,
And walk with him below.
On all who love the Saviour,
And walk with him below.
