Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
