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

I Go To Heaven, There Is My Home

Representative Text

1 I go to heaven, there is my home,
There is no sin and no sorrow,
There is the city that shall become
My blest abode of to-morrow.

2 There is the joy I on earth have missed,
There is the hope that was fleeting,
And there my Lord and my Savior blest
The host of pilgrims is greeting.

3 I hasten on to my home on high,
With joy and gladness proceeding,
Although from weakness I oft must sigh
When wounded severely are bleeding.

4 I go to heaven, there is my home,
There is no sorrow, nor weeping,
There is the city where saints shall roam
And henceforth dwell in God's keeping.
