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 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 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

1 Ah! this heart shall cease its longing,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Where no anxious cares are thronging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Now a heavy burden pressed,
And I walk thro’ thorny places,
Till my weary wand’ring ceases,
Safe at home! safe at home!

2 There I’ll see no tempest raging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Sin no warfare wild is waging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
When shall come the blissful waking,
Where no painful head is aching,
Where no throbbing heart is breaking,
Safe at home! safe at home!

3 There are friends who with me parted,
Safe at home! safe at home!
No more wand’ring broken hearted,
Undisturb’d while storms are sweeping,
Calmly now the loved are sleeping,
Ever in their Father’s keeping,
Safe at home! safe at home!

4 Dear ones gone before will meet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
At the pearly gate will greet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Saviour, dearest Saviour, hear me,
I am weary, be Thou near me,
Oh, sustain me till Thou cheer me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
