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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 In the paths of sin and darkness I no longer roam,
This vile world has no delights for me;
I have joined the band of pilgrims who are traveling Home,
I am on the road that leads to glory.

Refrain:
I am on the road, I am on the road,
I am on the road that leads to glory!
Soon I’ll see the pearly gates,
Where my Lord and Saviour waits,
For I’m on the road that leads to glory!

2 Tho’ the path may oft grow narrow He will lead me; through,
For He’s Life and Light each day to me;
I will tread the way with Jesus’ own despised few,
For I’m on the road that leads to glory. [Refrain]

3 Just beyond me lies that Glorious City, guilt four-square,
And the Home He has prepared for me;
When I reach my journey’s end, I’ll find Him waiting there,
For I’m on the road that leads to glory. [Refrain]
