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 to the glory,
Yes, the glory-land is near;
And we want you to go with us,
While the way is made so clear.

To the glory-land, to the glory-land,
Won’t you come to the glory-land?
Thro’ the Savior’s blood, reconciled to God,
Won’t you come to the glory-land?

2 There are loved ones in the glory,
There are joys beyond compare;
Now the voice of God is calling,
Bidding us to bring you there. [Refrain]

3 Not a sin can enter yonder,
For the Word of God is sure,
That you cannot see the Father,
Not until your heart is pure. [Refrain]

4 Won’t you start tonight for glory,
Tell the Savior of your sin?
He has promised to forgive you,
If you come to God thro’ Him. [Refrain]
