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 Are you marching, patient marching,
Thro’ the storms of life?
Are you meeting, daily meeting
Weary toil and strife?
There’s a voice above the tumult, speaking still to you,
Never falter, never waver,
To the right be true.

Refrain:
To the right, to the right,
List the voice that speaks to you,
To the right be ever true,
To the right,
To the right,
Never falter, never waver,
To the right be true.

2 Are you thinking, daily thinking
Of the painful way?
Often asking, frequent asking
Why these suff’rings stay?
Hear a promise, all shall surely work for good to you,
Never fearing, never doubting,
To the right be true. [Refrain]

3 Are you hoping, joyful hoping,
For the rest of heaven?
Are you waiting, patient waiting,
Till the chains are riven?
Would you keep the heavenly mansions clear and bright in view?
Always heed the earnest promptness,
To the right be true. [Refrain]
