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 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.

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]
