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 Jesus has promised me a home in heav’n,
Safe with the loved ones in his mansion fair;
O ‘twill be sweet when earthly ties are riv’n,
Resting with Jesus over there.

Home in my Father’s kingdom fair,
Home that my Saviour will prepare;
Home, where the blessed angels are,
Jesus has promised me over there.

2 Jesus has promised me a crown of gold,
When by and by I join the ransomed throng;
Then shall I taste the joys of heav’n untold,
Then shall I sing the glad New Song. [Refrain]

3 Jesus has promised me a robe of white,
Washed in the blood that flowed on Calvary;
O I shall praise him in that world of light,
When to my home he beckons me. [Refrain]

4 Jesus has promised me eternal life,
There in the Home-land, on the golden shore,
I shall be done with all the pain and strife,
Safe with my Lord forevermore. [Refrain]
