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

Full Text

1 Children of the kingdom, while we journey here,
Only for a time abiding;
Looking unto Jesus, banish ev’ry fear,
For his eyes our path is guiding.

Refrain:
From the land of song, the bright land of song,
Listen to the music gently falling;
Children of the kingdom, tarry not, but come
Where the pure in heart are calling.

2 Children of the kingdom, pressing on our way,
Never let us falter, never;
Bear the cross of Jesus, bear it ev’ry day,
In his mercy trusting ever. [Refrain]

3 Children of the kingdom, while we watch and wait,
Never be discouraged, never;
Soon our feet will enter thro’ the palace gate,
And go out no more forever. [Refrain]

4 Children of the kingdom, joyful let us be,
Yonder is the shining river;
There in all his beauty we the King shall see,
And behold his face forever. [Refrain]
