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 Marching along with banner and song,
We are coming bright as the day;
Hope like an angel scatters her flow’rs
O’er our happy way;
Marching along, marching along,
Voices blending, hearts full of glee;
Love and beauty, smiling o’er us,
Crown our jubilee.

Refrain:
Marching along with banner and song,
Lightly, quickly bounding away;
Marching along, our Sunday school army
Welcome a joyful day.

2 Friends who behold us gathered once more,
See our numbers, mark how they grow;
Led by the Saviour lovingly on,
Forward still we go;
Marching along, marching along,
This our watchword, Trust in the Lord;
If we bear His standard nobly,
Great is our reward. [Refrain]

3 Marching along with banner and song,
Straight before us, keep in the line
Where our Commander leadeth us on;
There His light will shine;
Keep in the line, keep in the line,
Marching, marching, marching along;
May our Saviour find us ever
Loyal, brave and strong. [Refrain]
