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. 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.
