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 on, an army strong and grand,
Marching on to Canaan’s happy land.
By Jehovah we are led along,
Safely to the land of joy and song;
Happy, free as birds upon the wing,
Marching homeward with a mighty King.

Refrain:
On, joyously on;
We are marching on, an army strong and grand.
On, joyously on;
We are marching on to Canaan’s happy land.

2 Marching on through sunny days of youth,
Loyal ever to the gospel truth;
Tempted often as we onward go,
Never yielding to the wily foe.
With our banner flashing ‘gainst the sky,
Marching to the promised land on high. [Refrain]

3 Marching on through dust and burning heat;
Marching often, too, with weary feet;
Strife and trials may beset our way,
We keep boldly marching day by day.
Cheerfully the trials we will bear,
For we know that vict’ry waits us there. [Refrain]
