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.

Representative Text

1. In the good old way where the saints have gone,
And the King leads on before us,
We are traveling home to the heav’nly hills,
With the daystar shining o’er us.

Traveling home to the mansions fair,
Crowns of rejoicing and life to wear;
O what a shout when we all get there
Safe in the glory land.

2. In the good old way like the ransomed throng,
Unto Zion now returning,
We are traveling home at the King’s command,
And our lamps are trimmed and burning. [Refrain]

3. In the good old way with a steadfast faith,
In the bonds of love and union,
What a joy is ours, for the King we see,
And with Him we hold communion. [Refrain]

4. Tho’ our feet must stand on the cold, cold brink
Of the Jordan’s stormy river,
With the King we’ll cross to the other side,
And we’ll sing His praise forever. [Refrain]
