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 Onward up the King’s great highway,
Upward to the promised land,
We are marching with a shout of triumph,
For the Lord of hosts is in command;
Steadily, our force increasing,
On we go with songs of joy,
For no enemy shall hold the way before us,
Neither shall they frighten or destroy.

Refrain:
Onward at the King’s command
Upward to the promised land,
Moves the mighty army of the Lord in proud array,
To victory and glory o’er the King’s highway;
Onward at the King’s command
Upward to the promised land,
Moves the mighty army of the Lord in proud array,
To victory and glory o’er the King’s highway.

2 Though the day be dark and dreary,
Tho’ the stormy winds rush by,
Yet we know the sun is brightly shining
Just beyond the clouds that veil the sky;
Onward, then, and upward, ever,
Singing, praising more and more,
Till we reach at last the promised land of beauty
And our days of marching are all o’er. [Refrain]
