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 In joyful bands we’re marching on,
True, faithful soldiers let us be;
A better day begins to dawn;
We’re marching on to victory!

We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
We’re marching on to victory;
A better day begins to dawn;
We are marching, marching on to victory!

2 Thy kingdom come, O Lord, we pray,
The world from Satan’s bondage free;
May truth and right soon win the day;
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

3 The gospel banner soon shall wave
O’er ev’ry land, on ev’ry sea;
So onward press, ye brave and true,
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

4 Come, let us join the glad refrain,
That glorious day the world shall see;
Hosanna! swell the joyful strain,
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]

5 And when the day at last is won,
We’ll join the general jubilee;
All glory give to God’s dear Son;
We’re marching on to victory! [Refrain]
