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.

Representative Text

1 I am often tossed and driven
O’er this weary pilgrim land,
Often footsore, lone and weary,
Scarcely having strength to stand;
But I’m looking unto Jesus,
For He doth my soul sustain,
And when I shall go to meet Him,
I will never move again.

I will never move again,
No I’ll never move again,
I’ve a title to a mansion
Thro’ my Savior who was slain.
And when I get home to glory,
I will never move again.

2 I may never own a cottage
Polished with earth’s shining gold,
Never have great wealth like many,
Who their earthly titles hold;
But I’m heir to a bright mansion
Where with Jesus I shall reign,
And when He shall call me yonder,
I will never move again. [Refrain]

3 Often I am weary waiting
For the call to yonder strand,
Keeping in the path of duty,
Holding to my Savior’s hand;
Trying to be true and faithful
To my Savior who was slain,
So when I shall meet Him yonder,
I will never move again. [Refrain]
