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 coming home to Jesus,
We have heard His welcome voice;
We are trusting in His goodness,
In His mercy we rejoice.

We are coming home,
we are coming home,
We are coming from the darkness to the light;
We are coming home,
we are coming home,
We are coming home tonight.

2 We are coming home to Jesus,
For He died that we might live:
He is willing to receive us,
He is waiting to forgive. [Refrain]

3 We are coming home to Jesus,
By the cross our only way;
There He finished our redemption,
And we can no more delay. [Refrain]
