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 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
In the Saviour we are strong;
He directs us on our journey,
Fills our hearts with love and song.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah gladly sing;
We are going, we are going
To the palace of a King.

2 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Drawing nearer every day,
To a mansion bright with glory
That shall never fade away. [Refrain]

3 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Tho’ our hearts are oft oppressed;
Jesus kindly bears our burdens,
Gives the weary spirit rest. [Refrain]

4 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Our Redeemer’s love to share;
We shall see Him in His kingdom,
We shall dwell forever there. [Refrain]
