Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 We have heard the glad tidings of joy,
And our voices we lift upon high;
Here's a-dieu to each vain earthly toy--
We are all going home by-and-by.

Refrain:
Going home by-and-by, going home by-and-by,
When the shadows shall come nevermore;
Going home by-and-by, going home by-and-by,
To our rest on that beautiful shore.

2 Long and weary the journey has been;
In our path has been many a sigh;
From this dark land of sorrow and sin
We are all going home by-and-by. [Refrain]

3 With the lost ones of earth we shall meet
When the trumpet of God rends the sky;
Clad in garments of beauty complete,
They are all going home by-and-by. [Refrain]

4 Hasten, Saviour, thy coming we pray,
Bid thy saints upward mount to the sky;
Usher in glad eternity's day,
Come and gather us home by-and-by. [Refrain]
