Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Come, ye children, march along

Full Text

1 Come, ye children, march along,
With a sturdy heart and strong,
With a merry face and song,
To the Savior's kingdom.

Singing, singing on the way,
Singing, singing ev'ry day;
With a merry heart and gay,
Singing on the way.

2 Are temptations in your way?
Fight them bravely day by day;
They will flee from you away,
At a pray'r to Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Are the skies with clouds o'ercast,
Damp and chilly is the blast?
Oh! the sunbeams will at last,
Brighten all for Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Tho' the hours are dark and sad,
Seems there less of good than bad,
Make thyself and others glad,
With a song of Jesus. [Chorus]
