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

Let Us Cheer the Weary Traveler

I'll take my gospel trumpet

Tune: [I'll take my gospel trumpet]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

Let us cheer the weary traveler,
Cheer the weary traveler,
Let us cheer the weary traveler,
Along the heavenly way.

1 I'll take my gospel trumpet,
And I'll begin to blow,
And if my Saviour helps me,
I'll blow wherever I go. [Refrain]

2 And if you meet with crosses
And trials on the way,
Just keep your trust in Jesus,
And don't forget to pray. [Refrain]
