We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 The road to heav’n by Christ was made,
With heav’nly truth the rails are laid;
From earth to heav’n the line extends,
To life eternal where it ends.

I’m going home, I’m going home,
I’m going home to die no more!
To die no more, to die no more,
I’m going home to die no more!

2 Repentance is the station, then,
Where passengers are taken in;
No fee for them is there to pay,
For Jesus is himself the way. [Refrain]

3 The Bible is the engineer—
It points the way to heaven so clear,
Thro’ tunnels dark and dreary here—
It does the way to glory steer. [Refrain]

4 God’s love the fire, his truth the steam
Which drives the engine and the train,
All you who would to glory ride,
Must come to Christ—in him abide. [Refrain]

5 Come, then, poor sinner, now is the time
At any station on the line;
If you repent and turn from sin,
The train will stop and take you in. [Refrain]
