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

Representative Text

1 Brother, you may go to glory,
Hear the good news;
Brother, you may go to glory,
Hear the good news.

You may lay down this world
And take up the cross,
And go with us to glory,
Hear the good news.

2 All your sins may be forgiven.

3 Sinners now are finding Jesus.

4 He will save and sanctify you.

5 He is building us a mansion.

6 Jesus tasted death for sinners.

7 He will welcome all who trust Him.

8 You may join the blood-washed army.

9 Now’s the time for peace and pardon.

10 Come, O come, He waits to save you.

11 Soon my Savior will be coming.
