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

Happy Home

Representative 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]
