We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 I’m in the way, the bright and shining way,
I’m in the glory-land way;
Telling the world that Jesus saves today,
Yes, I’m in the glory-land way.

I’m in the glory-land way;
I’m in the glory-land way;
Heaven is nearer, and the way groweth clearer,
For I’m in the glory-land way.

2 List to the call, the gospel call today,
Get in the glory-land way;
Wand’rers, come home, oh, hasten to obey,
And get in the glory-land way. [Refrain]

3 Onward I go, rejoicing in His love
I’m in the glory-land way;
Soon I shall see Him in that home above,
Oh I’m in the glory-land way. [Refrain]
