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

We're on the Way

Representative Text

1 The promised land! by faith I see,
Where God's own glory gilds the day,
Where we shall dwell with Christ redeem'd,
By His own grace we're on the way.

We're on the way, we're on the way,
To glory-land we're on the way;
We follow Jesus day by day,
He leads us all along the way

2 The promised land! where thousands dwell,
Who've washed their robes in Jesus' blood,
With them we'll wave the branch of palm,
When we have cross'd the narrow flood. [Chorus]

3 The promised land! with gates of pearl,
Ajar for all the blood-wash'd throng,
A few more marches—hold on faith!
And then we'll sing Redemption's song. [Chorus]

4 The promised land! with mansions fair,
Where Jesus now prepares a place,
From whence He'll come to take us home,
And we shall see Him face to face. [Chorus]

5 The promised land! the Father's house
Awaits us on the shining shore,
When there we'll strike our harps of gold,
And praise His name for evermore. [Chorus]
