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

1. We’re going home, no more to roam,
No more to sin and sorrow;
No more to wear the brow of care,
We’re going home tomorrow.

Refrain
We’re going home, we’re going home tomorrow,
We’re going home, we’re going home tomorrow.

2. For weary feet awaits a street
Of wondrous pave and golden;
For hearts that ache, the angels wake
The story, sweet and olden. [Refrain]

3. For those who sleep, and those who weep,
Above the portals narrow,
The mansions rise beyond the skies—
We’re going home tomorrow. [Refrain]

4. Oh, joyful song! Oh, ransomed throng!
Where sin no more shall sever;
Our king to see, and, oh, to be
With Him at home forever! [Refrain]
