Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Gospel train is coming

That gospel train is coming

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

King Jesus is a-listenin’ all day long,
King Jesus is a-listenin’ all day long,
King Jesus is a-listenin’ all day long,
To hear some sinner pray.

1 That Gospel train is comin’,
A-rumblin' through the lan’,
But I hear them wheels a-hummin’
Get ready to board that train! [Refrain]

2 I know I been converted,
I ain’t gon’ make no alarm,
For my soul is bound for glory,
And the devil can’t do me no harm. [Refrain]
