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.

Representative Text

1 Roll on the gospel chariot,
And crush out Satan’s plans,
The Savior calls, “Come view my wounds,
My feet and bleeding hands;
For you I bore the cruel cross,
Fro you the death of shame,
For you the painful crown of thorns,
For you the triumph came.”

Refrain:
Get on the gospel chariot,
Yes, get on board tonight,
Bells are ringing, train is waiting,
‘Twill soon be out of sight.
Oh, get on the gospel chariot,
Yes, get on board tonight,
The bells are ringing, train is waiting,
‘Twill soon be out of sight.

2 Roll on the gospel chariot,
The gate stands open wide,
Come, weary, doubting sinner, come,
For you the Savior died;
With bated breath the angels wait,
All heaven bids you come,
They open wide the golden age,
Here’s pardon, rest, and home. [Refrain]

3 Roll on the gospel chariot,
And call the wand’rers in,
The Savior died, and rose again,
To save a world from sin;
Come, sing the old, old story,
And make the anthems ring,
We’ll join the throng, and chant the song
Of triumph to our King. [Refrain]
