During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1 We are traveling on life’s journey
Happy on the upward way;
Soon we’ll reach the gates of glory
Leading to eternal day.

Refrain:
We are going home to glory,
’Tis the Christ who bids us come;
Just beyond the crystal river,
Waits a bright, eternal home.

2 Though the road be steep and stony,
On we toil through cold or heat;
We will keep in step with Jesus,
Till we rest our weary feet. [Refrain]

3 We are going home to Jesus,
When our race on earth is run;
Heaven’s glory will grow brighter,
When has set life’s sinking sun. [Refrain]
