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.
1 Onward, pilgrim, don’t delay;
Go rejoicing on the way
Rising higher ev’ry day,
While trav’ling up to Zion.
Going up higher, going up higher,
Higher up to Zion;
Going up higher, higher, higher,
To the city of our God.
2 In the way mark’d out of old,
Follow line of duty bold;
Then each danger you behold,
Will prove a chained lion. [Refrain]
3 Each step forward, up or down,
Met by scorn, rebuke, or frown,
Brings us nearer to the crown
We shall receive in Zion. [Refrain]
4 Sorrows and afflictions meet;
Dangers threaten, trials greet;
Fear not! Jesus guides the feet,
And points the way to Zion. [Refrain]
5 On the mount His praise prolong;
Pass the gloomy vale with song;
Richest blessings ever throng
The pilgrim’s way to Zion. [Refrain]Source: The Helper in Sacred Song: for Sunday-schools, churches, and devotional services #85
