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 Heirs of God with Christ our King,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates;
As we journey let us sing,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates.

Refrain:
We are pilgrims to the gates,
To the wondrous pearly gates,
Where the ransomed spirit waits;
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates.

2 Thro’ the dreary desert wide,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates;
Trusting in our Saviour guide,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates. [Refrain]

3 Heirs to “Many Mansions” fair,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates;
Songs of welcome wait us there,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll walk each gold-paved street,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates;
Soon find rest for toil-worn feet,
We are pilgrims to the beautiful pearly gates. [Refrain]
