Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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]
