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

When the ranks march

Representative Text

1 There will come a blessed morning, shadows then will disappear,
And the heart be free from sorrow and from sin;
It will be a wondrous gath’ring from the nations far and near,
When the ranks of the saved march in.

When the ranks of the saved thro’ the gates march in,
When the ranks of the saved march in;
Kept by his redeeming grace,
I shall see the Savior’s face
When the ranks of the saved march in.

2 Soon will Jesus call his children to be with him over there,
Soon a crown of life the ransomed soul shall win;
There’ll be shouting and rejoicing, there’ll be raiment white and fair,
When the ranks of the saved march in. [Refrain]

3 Soon the trump of God shall echo o’er the mountain and the plain,
Then the gath’ring from the nations shall begin;
Ev’ry heart shall then in rapture tell of Jesus’ love again,
When the ranks of the saved march in. [Refrain]
