Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. From east and west, from north and south
That countless host shall throng,
Unnumbered as the sea’s white sands
Its myriads pass along.

Their song shall ring as loud they sing
While gladly marching on,
They tribute bring to Christ the King,
When cares of life are done.

2. With palms of victory shall they come,
While marching proud and grand
As free from toil they near that home
Within the promised land. [Refrain]

3. From tribulations great they come
With robes made white and fair,
By washing in the precious blood
Of Christ their Captain there. [Refrain]
