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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

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]
