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

Representative 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]
