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

Representative Text

Refrain:
There's plenty good room,
There's plenty good room,
Way in the kingdom;
There's plenty good room,
There's plenty good room,
Way in the kingdom.

1 My Lord's done just what he said,
Way in the kingdom;
Healed the sick and raised the dead,
Way in the kingdom. [Refrain]

2 One of these mornings bright and fair,
Way in the kingdom;
Going to hitch on my wings and cleave the air,
Way in the kingdom. [Refrain]

3 When I was a mourner just like you,
Way in the kingdom;
I prayed and prayed till I cane through,
Way in the kingdom. [Refrain]

4 Come on, mourner make a bound,
Way in the kingdom;
The Lord will meet you on halfway ground,
Way in the kingdom. [Refrain]
