Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 On to the land of glory,
On to the home of light,
Singing the dear old story,
On to the mansions bright;
Joyfully shouting hosanna,
Praising the name of our King,
Following after His banner,
Gladly our voices ring.

Refrain:
On! on! on!
On to the land of glory!
On! on! on!
On to the home of light!
On! on! on!
Singing the dear old story;
On! on! on!
On to the mansions bright.

2 Loyal to Christ our Leader,
Trusting His boundless might,
Marching in Zion’s army,
Battling for God and right;
Victory only thro’ Jesus,
This is the watchword of faith,
Certainly He will be with us,
With us in life and death. [Refrain]

3 On to the land of glory,
On to the home so dear,
Helping each other upward,
On with a song of cheer;
Glorious hopes are before us,
Yonder the crown and the palm,
Join in the jubilant chorus,
Join the thanksgiving psalm. [Refrain]
