Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
The choirs of Heav’n are singing,
The pearly gates are swinging,
As we go marching home.

2. The light of Heav’n is shining,
The light of Heav’n is shining,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The light of Heav’n is shining,
The shade of night’s declining,
The clouds have silver lining,
As we go marching home.

3. The harps of Heav’n are playing,
The harps of Heav’n are playing,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The harps of Heav’n are playing,
The heirs of Heav’n are praying,
To God their homage paying,
As we go marching home.
