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.

Representative Text

1 ’Neath the sacred Gospel banner with the Savior for our guide,
We are marching on to glory day by day;
Trusting in our holy leader thro’ whatever may betide,
We are marching on to glory day by day.

Refrain:
We are marching on to glory day by day,
We are marching on to glory day by day;
Gathering from every nation, ’neath the banner of salvation,
We are marching on to glory day by day.

2 Climbing rugged steeps before us, led in ways we do not know,
We are marching on to glory day by day;
Passing oft thro’ pleasant valleys where refreshing waters flow,
We are marching on to glory day by day. [Refrain]

3 Overcoming earth’s temptations, joys enduring to obtain,
We are marching on to glory day by day;
Seeking Heaven’s shining city, life eternal there to gain,
We are marching on to glory day by day. [Refrain]

4 To be ready for the banquet at the marriage of the Lamb,
We are marching on to glory day by day;
With the company of pure ones to unite in victory’s psalm,
We are marching on to glory day by day. [Refrain]
