We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 On the good old road that our fathers trod,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!
To a city whose builder and maker is God,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!

Refrain:
Praise the Lord, what a joy is mine!
Hallelujah, I’ve a peace divine!
‘Round my heart doth His love entwine,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!

2 Tho’ temptations come I will trust the Lord,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!
“Be of cheer,” Jesus said, and I trust in His word,
Singing on the way, hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 I will meet the friends who have gone before,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!
In that bright, summer land where we’ll part nevermore,
Singing on the way, hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 It will not be long if my faith be strong,
Singing on the way, hallelujah!
When I’ll join in the song of the heavenly throng,
Singing on the way, hallelujah! [Refrain]
