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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Away in the Kingdom

Come all oppressed and hear me tell

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Come all oppressed and hear me tell
Away in the Kingdom,
That Jesus conquered death and hell,
Away in the Kingdom.
He bought my pardon on the Tree,
Away in the Kingdom.
I'm glad to tell you now I'm free,
Away in the Kingdom.

There's plenty of room,
Away in the Kingdom.
There's plenty of room, my Jesus says,
Away in the Kingdom.
