We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Zion's Travellers

Tell us, O women, we would know

Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Tell us, O women, we would know
Whither so fast ye move?
We, call'd to leave this world below,
Are seeking one above.

2 Whence came ye, say, and what the place
That ye are trav'ling from?
From tribulation, we, thro' grace,
Are now returning home.

3 Is not your native dwelling here,
Like you not this abode?
We seek a better country far,
A city built by God.

4 Thither we travel, nor intend
Short of that bliss to rest;
Nor we, 'till in the sinner's friend,
Our wearied souls are blest.

Chorus:
5 Friends of the bridegroom we shall reign,
Saviour we ask no more;
Hail Lamb of God for sinners slain
Whom Heav'n and earth adore.
