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

Come, ye children, march along

Representative 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]
