Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

1 Tidings from over the Jordan,
News from our Saviour in glory,
Borne in a wonderful story,
Telling of rapture and love;
Tidings from over the Jordan;
Hear the glad message declaring
Hope to the lone and despairing,
Joy to the poor and oppressed.

Marching, marching,
Steadily on, rejoicing;
Marching, marching,
cheerily on we go;
Tidings of joy invite us,
Echoes of song delight us;
Marching, marching,
Cheerily onward we go.

2 Tidings from over the Jordan;
All, if they will, may receive them;
Happy are they who believe them,
Looking to Jesus for rest;
Tidings from over the Jordan;
Voices are tenderly calling,
Come where no shadows are falling,
Come to the land of the blest. [Refrain]

3 Tidings from over the Jordan;
There is the city of gladness,
End of all weeping and sadness,
Bright with Immanuel’s love;
There are the fold and the Shepherd,
There is the beautiful river.
There may we dwell and forever,
Safe in the pastures above. [Refrain]
