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

1 I’m on my way to Glory!
The land of light above,
There I’ll repeat the story
Of Christ’s redeeming love;
I’ll join with saints and angels
To celebrate his fame,
And thro’ eternal ages
His praises I’ll proclaim,

Singing, Glory! singing, Glory!
I am on my way to Zion, singing, Glory!

2 I’m on my way to heaven,
The place of joy and rest,
Where perfect peace is given
To ev’ry troubled breast;
The cross no longer bearing,
I’ll lay my burden down,
With bliss and honor wearing
A bright, unfading crown, [Refrain]

3 I’m on my way to Zion,
The city built on high,
Jerusalem the joyous,
Beyond the lofty sky;
I’ll pass its shining portal,
Its splendor I’ll behold,
Partake of life immortal,
And walk its streets of gold, [Refrain]
