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,

1 We’re a band of happy pilgrims bound for our home above,
Walking in the highway of the King;
Our lips are filled with praises, our hearts are full of love,
Walking in the highway of the King.

Refrain:
Walking in the highway of the King,
Walking in the highway of the King;
With hearts all full of praise, we’re happy all our days,
Walking in the highway of the King.

2 This is the grand old highway our fathers all have trod,
Walking in the highway of the King;
The only way that leads us to heaven and to God,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

3 No unclean thing can ever pass o’er this holy way,
Walking in the highway of the King;
No danger can befall us, we’re safe by night and day,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

4 With songs of joy and gladness the ransomed now we see,
Walking in the highway of the King;
With garments pure and spotless, and hearts from sin made free,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

Originally from Ohio, Henry was an early leader in the Holiness Movement near Boyertown, Pennsylvania. In 1889 he, answered a call to hold revival meetings in eastern Pennsylvania. Denominational leaders had received requests from congregations there, but had no one to send. Though Henry was only 22 years old, he proved a very effective organizer. He toured eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey for several months each year till 1895. He became a very active evangelist and song writer, holding meetings in every American state and in Britain. --www.hymntime.com/tch… Go to person page >
