Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

77. Gathering Home

1 Up to the bountiful Giver of life,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up to the dwelling where cometh no strife,
The dear ones are gathering home.

Gathering home! gathering home!
Never to sorrow more, never to roam;
Gathering home! gathering home!
God's children are gathering home.

2 Up to the city where falleth no night,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up where the Saviour's own face is the light,
The dear ones are gathering home.

3 Up to the beautiful mansions above,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Safe in the arms of his infinite love,
The dear ones are gathering home.
