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 to a goodly land,
Where our loved have gone before;
They have fought the fight, they have kept the faith,
And have reached the golden shore.

Refrain:
They are watching, watching for the boat
That shall come to bear us o’er the sea;
When our work is done and our crown is won,
Shat a meeting, what a meeting there will be!

2 We are trav’ling home in the path they trod,
And our hearts with joy o’erflow,
For we trace the prints of their pilgrim feet,
As they journeyed long ago. [Refrain]

3 We are trav’ling home in the King’s highway
To his realm so bright and fair;
And he cheers us on with the happy thought,—
There will be no sorrow there. [Refrain]

4 We are trav’ling home to a goodly land,
That is clothed in fadeless bloom,
It was bought by him who has conquered death,
And is victor o’er the tomb. [Refrain]
