Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Little Pilgrim

Full 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.
