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 glory
Led, in the way, by hope;
In our hearts we hear the echo
Of sweet words that Jesus spoke.
I’ll prepare for you a mansion,
Yonder in my Father’s home;
You shall rest from toil and trouble,
Never more from me to roam.

2 We are trav’ling home to glory
Led, in the way, by love,
For we feel the daily blessings
Sent from His bright throne above.
As we journey on believing,
How happy our lives through grace,
Though His blessings we’re receiving,
Oft we long to see His face.

3 We are trav’ling home to glory,
Stronger, our faith, each day,
And the path is growing brighter,
All our fears are cast away.
We’ll be faithful till the ending,
And fight till the battle’s past.
All the toil we’re now expending,
Will bring us reward at last.

4 We are trav’ling home to glory,
Soon shall the gates fling wide,
Mid the splendors of the Father
We will dwell by Jesus’ side.
O what joy awaits our coming,
Yonder in the glory land,
By the side of Christ our Saviour
Where our joys shall never end.
