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.

Representative Text

1 We are pilgrims and strangers below,
Surrounded with sorrow and care,
To the land of sweet promise we go,
Our treasures and hearts are now there.

O, come, will you come and go with us there?
O, come, will you come, our pleasures to share?
Your friends are now waiting; oh, why will you roam?
O, come and go with us, and greet them at home.

2 To Canaan’s fair climes we are bound,
So beautiful, healthful and pure,
Where pleasures undying abound,
And friendships forever endure. [Refrain]

3 How sweet it will be to be there,
With Jesus and friends, evermore;
Away from all sorrow and care,
In our home on the evergreen shore. [Refrain]
