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 Coming home thro’ the twilight shadows gray,
And the toil and the stress of the busy day,
Now has pass’d from the memory away—
Coming home, coming home at twilight.

Refrain:
So shall the Christian’s passing be,
Just coming home to rest;
Just coming home at twilight
To those whom we love the best.

2 Then the load that today so heavy seems,
Will be dropp’d from our life like forgotten dreams,
As from heavenly portals love-light gleams,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]

3 Coming home with our Saviour to abide,
Where all tears by the Father’s hand are dried;
When at last we’ll be wholly satisfied,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]

4 Coming home, all the doubt and fearing o’er,
Where the lov’d ones await who had gone before
Free from sorrow and pain forevermore,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]
