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. A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more storm clouds dreary,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more days the cross to bear,
And then with Christ a crown to wear;
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home!

Refrain
O’er time’s rapid river,
soon we’ll rest forever;
No more marchings weary
when we gather home!

2. A few more nights of weeping,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more watches keeping,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more vict’ries over sin,
A few more sheaves to gather in,
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home! [Refrain]

3. A few more sweet links broken,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more kind words spoken,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more partings on the strand,
And then away to Canaan’s land:
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home! [Refrain]
