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, 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.

1 We are children of a King,
Heav'nly King, Heav'nly King,
We are children of a King,
Singing as we journey;
Jesus Christ, our guard and guide,
Bids us, nothing terrified,
Follow closely at His side,
Singing as we journey.

2 We are trav'ling to our home,
Blessed home, Blessed home,
We are trav'ling to our home,
Singing as we journey;
Tow'rd a city out of sight,
Where will fall no shade of night,
For our Saviour is its light,
Singing as we journey.

3 Full of joy we onward go,
Heav'nward go, Heav'nward go,
Full of joy we onward go,
Singing as we journey;
Singing all the journey thro'
Singing hearts are brave and true,
Singing till our home we view,
Singing as we journey.
