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

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.
