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

Happy Home

Full Text

There’s a crown laid up in glory,
There’s a robe for all to wear,
And we never need be sorry
That we did life’s troubles share;
For our crown will shine the brighter
For the battles we have won,
And our robes will be the whiter
When our trav’ling days are done.

Refrain:
Happy home, a happy home,
Nevermore from Christ to roam!
When our fighting here is over,
And our vict’ries all are won,
There’s a mansion up in glory,
When our trav’ling days are done.

2 There’s a golden harp in glory,
There’s a welcome for the true;
There’s a rest for all the weary,
There’s a victor’s palm for you;
Oh, we’ll praise the Lord forever
When we stand before His throne,
And our joys will end—no never!
When our trav’ling days are done. [Refrain]

3 There will be no room for sadness,
There will be no sorrow there,
For unceasing songs of gladness
Will forever fill the air;
There will be no farewell meetings
In that land where God’s the Sun;
But one long eternal greeting
When our trav’ling days are done. [Refrain]
