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.

Representative Text

1 I know I am nearing my Father’s home,
That beautiful home so fair,
Which all is so bright, for there is no night,
And I’ll meet with the loved ones there.

In that happy home, that blest happy home,
Where all is so bright and fair,
I’ll sing the glad song, with all the saved
And rest from all pain and care.

2 I know I am nearing the heav’nly goal
His glories I soon shall see,
Sweet praises I’ll sing, to Jesus the King
And from sin I shall then be free. [Refrain]

3 I know I am nearing the portals of light
Its radiance is shining so clear,
I’ll soon reach His side, where naught can betide
And I shall have naught to fear. [Refrain]

4 I know I am nearing the brink of life’s stream,
And though the dark billows may roll,
Still Jesus is near, my faint heat to cheer,
He’ll give peace to my troubled soul. [Refrain]
