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 on the sea of life we're homeward bound,
Drifting wrecks and struggling souls are all around;
But we do not fear the voyage, for we know
That the Saviour steers us as we onward go.

We're homeward bound for glory,
Homeward bound for glory;
There we'll meet with lov'd ones gone before,
We're homeward bound for glory,
Homeward bound for glory,
All the storms of life will soon be o'er.

2 Jesus guides our storm-toss'd barque across the seas,
He will bring us safely to the port of peace;
He's the Pilot; He is standing at the helm,
And no angry winds or waves can overwhelm. [Refrain]

3 Come on board the Gospel vessel, do not stay,
And we'll help you as we journey on the way;
Soon to harbour at our Father's blest abode,
We will worship in the city of our God. [Refrain]
