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.

1. I am now a child of God,
For I’m washed in Jesus’ blood;
I am watching and I’m longing while I wait;
Soon on wings of love I’ll fly,
To my home beyond the sky,
To my welcome, as I’m sweeping thro’ the gate.

Refrain
In the blood of yonder Lamb,
Washed from every stain I am;
Robed in whiteness, clad in brightness,
I am sweeping thro’ the gate;
Robed in whiteness, clad in brightness,
I am sweeping thro’ the gate.

2. Oh! the blessèd Lord of light,
He upholds me by His might;
And His arms enfold, and comfort while I wait;
I am leaning on His breast,
Oh! the sweetness of His rest,
Hallelujah, I am sweeping thro’ the gate. [Refrain]

3. I am sweeping thro’ the gate
Where the blessèd for me wait,
Where the weary workers rest forevermore;
Where the strife of earth is done,
And the crown of life is won,
Oh, the glory of that city just before! [Refrain]

4. Burst are all my prison bars;
And I soar beyond the stars,
To my Father’s house, the bright and blest estate.
Lo! the morn eternal breaks,
And the song immortal wakes,
Robed in whiteness I am sweeping thro’ the gate. [Refrain]
