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

Little Pilgrim

Representative Text

1. I would be a little pilgrim,
Traveling all the narrow way,
To the pilgrim land of promise,
There to dwell in endless day.

2. What would be earth's best of blessings
For a little earthly hour,
Should I miss the heav'nly ages,
And the resurrection pow'r?

3. When the meek shall earth inherit,
Earth renewed in wondrous grace,
Paradise restored forever,
In it let me have a place.

4. So, when Christ shall come from heaven,
Throng'd by shining cherubim,
Let him find me at my duty,
Or in peaceful sleep in him.
