Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

1 Oh, what ship is this that will take us all home?
O glory! Hallelujah!
‘Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!
‘Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!

2 Come alone, come along, and let us go home!
O glory! Hallelujah!
Our home is over Jordan, Hallelujah!
Our home is over Jordan, Hallelujah!

3 Do you think she will be able to take us all home?
O glory! Hallelujah!
No doubt she will be able, Hallelujah!
No doubt she will be able, Hallelujah!

4 She has landed many thousands, and can land as many more,
O glory! Hallelujah!
She has landed them in heaven, Hallelujah!
She has landed them in heaven, Hallelujah!
