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 come to the house of our Father,
Rejoicing together we sing;
To Jesus, who ransomed and saved us,
Our off’rings we joyfully bring.

The heirs to the kingdom of glory,
And songs of thanksgiving we sing;
We’re heirs to the kingdom of glory,
And Jesus, who loves us, is King.

2 We’re tenderly guided and guarded,
We’re going to heave, our home;
Then why, in the pathway of error,
Afar from the fold should we roam? [Refrain]

3 As onward we journey together,
Life’s burden ’tis needless to bear;
For Jesus is ready to carry
Our sorrow, our sin and our care. [Refrain]

4 We’re ransomed from bondage forever,
We’re crowned with the blessing of love;
The dawn of each swift-coming morrow,
Our Father’s compassion will prove. [Refrain]
