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 Heart and hand for Jesus; marching on
In the way his hallowed feet have gone;
To the land of bright unfading day,
Marching in the narrow way.

Marching, marching,
Marching in the narrow way with Jesus;
Marching, we’re marching,
Marching in the narrow way.

2 Over in that happy peaceful place,
When we see the Saviour face to face,
We’ll be like him, O so bright and fair,
And be called his jewels rare. [Refrain]

3 When our eyes behold the wondrous sight,
Of the host in robes of spotless white,
We’ll rejoice when Christ the Lord we see,
With a robe for you and me. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll be with Jesus in that land,
Where the saints in joy before him stand;
There with them our souls made pure and sweet,
We shall worship at his feet. [Refrain]
