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

1 Joy, joy, joy today!
Joy, joy, joy today!
We are marching on,
We are marching on;
Shout aloud for Christ our King,
Joy today, joy today!
Let the joyful chorus ring,
As we march along;
Lift the gospel banner high,
Sing the chorus of the sky,
The Lord our God shall triumph o’er His foes.
Let salvation be our plea.
As we march along;
Sound the note of victory,
As we march along;
Let our adoration blend
With the songs that never end,
For worthy is the Lamb that once was slain.
Hallelujah, Glory be to God;
Hallelujah, Glory be to God;
Glory be to God,
Jesus is our King.

2 Joy, joy, joy today!
Joy, joy, joy today!
Glory be to God,
Jesus is our King;
Loud our anthems let us raise,
Joy today, joy today!
Praise His name forever praise,
As we march along;
Let exultant anthems rise,
From the fullness of the soul,
Until they reach the holy courts on high.
Speak the news from shore to shore
Trav’lers bound to heav’n;
Christ is King for evermore,
Trav’lers bound to heaven;
He hath died to give us life,
Joy for pain, and peace for strife,
And now He sitteth on the throne of God.
Glory, glory, Jesus is our King;
Glory, glory, Jesus is our King.
Glory be to God,
Jesus is our King.
