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

1. I am on my way to Heaven
where the saints are robed in white
Shouting glory, shouting glory!
To that blessèd land immortal
where can never come the night,
Shouting glory all the way!

Refrain
O glory, hallelujah!
I am on the way to Heaven,
Shouting glory, shouting glory
O glory, hallelujah!
I am on the way to Heaven,
Shouting glory, all the way!

2. I am on my way to Heaven
where the streets are paved with gold,
Shouting glory, shouting glory!
To the place of many mansions
and of glories yet untold,
Shouting glory all the way! [Refrain]

3. I am on my way to Heaven,
blessèd land of pure delight,
Shouting glory, shouting glory!
Where the blest of every nation
are forever clothed in white,
Shouting glory all the way! [Refrain]

4. I am on my way to Heaven
where I’ll see my Savior’s face
Shouting glory, shouting glory!
There I’ll sing redemption’s story,
blessèd song of saving grace,
Shouting glory all the way! [Refrain]
