We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

250. When the Saints Go Marching In

1 I am just a lonesome trav’ler,
Through this big, wide world of sin;
Want to join that grand procession,
When the saints go marching in.

Refrain:
Oh, when the saints go marching in,
Oh, when the saints go marching in;
Lord, I want to be in that number,
When the saints go marching in.

2 All my folks have gone before me,
All my friends and all my kin;
But I’ll meet with them up yonder,
When the saints go marching in. [Refrain]

3 Come and join me in my journey,
’Cause it’s time that we begin;
And we’ll be there for that judgment,
When the saints go marching in. [Refrain]
