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

Full Text

Refrain:
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove,
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove,
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove;
I'd fly away and be at rest.

1 Virgin Mary had one Son,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
But the Jews and Romans had Him hung.
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]

2 Zion's daughters wept and mourned,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
When their dying Savior groaned,
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]

3 Sinner-man see what a shame,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
To trample down your Savior's name.
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]
