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 Travel onward and be true,
For the Lord depends on you,
And the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Ever bravely battle on,
Till the crown of life is won,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon.

Refrain:
On, the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Yes, the glory day is coming very soon;
Bravely carry on the fight,
Daily spread the gospel light,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon.

2 Labor on in faith and love,
Sure that Jesus reigns above,
And the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Help the weary on the way
To the realms of endless day,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon. [Refrain]

3 Pearly gates and mansions bright
Very soon will greet our sight,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon;
Soon our happy souls shall view
Jesus our Redeemer, too,
For the glory day is coming, coming soon. [Refrain]
