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 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.
