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 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Rejoicing in the Lord;
Believing in His promise,
And trusting in His word;
Fear not! For He is with us,
Whate’er the cross we bear;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there!

Refrain:
Gather over there!
Gather over there!
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there!

2 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Along the heavenly way;
Remember, God commands us
To watch, and work, and pray;
He bids us all be faithful,
And cast on Him our care;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there! [Refrain]

3 Press on, press on, O pilgrim,
Tho’ clouds and storms may rise;
The Light that never faileth
Shines brightly in the skies:
Press on where crowns await us,
In yonder mansions fair;
And soon beyond the swelling tide,
We’ll gather over there! [Refrain]
