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 I am on my pilgrim journey;
Ere I reach the narrow sea,
I would tell the wondrous story,
What the Lord has done for me.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Tho’ a stranger here I roam;
I am on my way to Zion,
I’m a pilgrim going home.

2 I was lost, but Jesus found me,
Taught my heart to seek his face;
From a wild and lonely desert,
Bro’t me to his fold of grace. [Refrain]

3 Now my soul with rapture glowing,
Sings aloud with pard’ning love;
Looks beyond a world of sorrow,
To the pilgrim’s home above. [Refrain]

4 I shall yet behold my Savior,
When the day of life is o’er,
I shall cast my crown before him,
And shall praise him evermore. [Refrain]
