Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Representative Text

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]
