Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 The highway of the King is free,
The lowly and the rich are there;
The welcome is to you and me,
The beauty of the way to share.
Companionship divinely sweet,
In harmony ascends our song;
We’ll rest, beyond, our weary feet,
And join the everlasting throng.

Refrain:
I’m walking in the King’s highway,
I’m walking in the King’s highway,
With Jesus my Companion, Friend,
I’m walking in the King’s highway.

2 I’m walking in the King’s highway,
In robes made white in blood divine;
And lest my feet should ever stray,
I firmly press my hand in Thine.
Forget me not, my Saviour, Friend,
Nor leave me to the cold world’s frown;
While life shall last, till days shall end,
With Thee alway I would be found. [Refrain]

3 Secure from sin’s delusive smile,
I rest my heard upon Thy breast;
I walk the way with Thee the while,
Awaiting soon the heav’nly rest.
Nor pain, nor strife, nor sorrow’s wound,
Nor anguish deep, when life is driven
By storm ashoal, shall e’er be found,
To mar my higher hope of heav’n. [Refrain]
