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

Marching with a song

Representative Text

1 Praise the Everlasting Father, soldiers young and strong,
Sing with joy your sweetest anthems as you march along;
Let the hosts of happy children swell the chorus grand
Of redemption o’er the land.

Marching, marching are the children, bringing offerings with singing;
Singing, singing, singing praises to their King!
Happy children tell with gladness of the Father’s love,—
Join the holy anthem sung in earth and heav’n above,—
On this glorious day of service for the Saviour, King,
As they all so sweetly sing.

2 Praise the King of earth and heaven on this happy day,
For the blessings of His kingdom and His holy sway;
Joyfully march on with singing till the world shall be
Filled with songs of jubilee! [Refrain]
