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

1 We are trav’ling home by the good old way,
By the way our father’s trod;
We will join them there in the land of day,
And forever reign with God.

Refrain:
‘Tis the same old way, the same old way,
There is just one road to Jesus,—
By the way of the cross of Calvary!
We must travel the same old way.

2 We at times will chance where the roadways cross,
There ‘tis Satan will delay,
But we heed the words of the still small voice
Saying, “Keep the narrow way.” [Refrain]

3 Many stop to look for a better way,
And are swallowed up in night,
While the faithful few, by their steady tread
Enter thro’ the gates of light. [Refrain]

4 ‘Twas my father’s way, ‘twas my mother’s way,
And ‘twill be the way for me!
When my journey’s done, and my crown is won,
By the same old way ‘twill be. [Refrain]

5 Oh, how glad am I there is just one way,
It is narrow, but ‘tis straight;
Tho’ it leads uphill we mount upward still
T’ward the heav’nly, pearly gate. [Refrain]
