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 love to think of my home above,
In the glorious realms of light;
Of the pearly gates and the golden streets,
In the land where there is no night.

Home, sweet home!
Happy home, sweet home!
Oh, say, will you meet me there,
In that home above,
Where all is love,
And joys beyond compare.

2 I love to think of my home above,
Of that pure and holy clime,
Where the sorrows of earth can never come,
But eternal joys will be mine. [Refrain]

3 I love to think of my home above,
Of the angel forms so bright;
Of the blessed ones there around the throne,
In the land of pure delight [Refrain]

4 Sweetest of all is the tho’t of Him
Who did leave His throne on high,
And did come to this sinful world of ours
To suffer, and bleed, and die. [Refrain]

5 That in that beautiful home above,
I may have a mansion fair;
And my heart is full of joy and praise,
For I know that my treasure is there. [Refrain]
