Representative Text

1 Lift up your heads, Immanuel's friends,
And taste the joys that Jesus sends:
Let nothing cause you to delay,
But hasten on the good old way.

Refrain:
We are marching, marching,
Marching along in the good old way,
We are marching, marching,
Marching in the gold old way.

2 Oh, good old way, how sweet thou art,
May none of us from thee depart;
But may our conduct always say,
We're marching in the good old way. [Refrain]

3 Soon we on Pisgah's top shall stand,
and view by faith the promised land;
So let us sing and shout and pray,
while marching in the good old way. [Refrain]

4 Ye valiant souls, for right contend,
Remember glory's at the end;
Our God shall wipe all tears away,
when we have run the good old way. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
