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.

Full Text

1 The gospel ship is coming,
Is coming, is coming,
The gospel ship is coming,
She’s nearing now in sight.

Refrain:
We’re bound for the heav’nly land,
We’re bound for the heav’nly land,
We’re bound for the heav’nly land,
We’ll anchor by and by.

2 Her crew on board are singing,
Are singing, are singing,
Her crew on board are singing
About her prospects bright. [Refrain]

3 All glory to our Captain,
Our Captain, our Captain,
All glory to our Captain,
Who guides the ship along. [Refrain]

4 Soon we shall be with Jesus,
With Jesus, with Jesus,
Soon we shall be with Jesus,
And praise Him evermore. [Refrain]
