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 Trav’lers to a better land,
On we go, on we go;
There we’ll join the blood-wash’d band,
Onward let us go;
Here we have not long to stay,
On we go, on we go,
Jesus Christ has led the way,
Onward let us go.

2 Trials there shall be no more,
On we go, on we go;
Perfect rest forevermore,
Onward let us go;
Here we often meet defeat,
On we go, on we go,
There we’ll sit at Jesus feet,
Onward let us go.

3 Earthly joys shall pass away,
On we go, on we go;
Earthly treasures shall decay,
Onward let us go;
Hearts that here were sometimes sad,
On we go, on we go,
Shall be there forever glad,
Onward let us go.

4 Dearest friends have gone before,
On we go, on we go;
Others, now are passing o’er,
Onward let us go;
When at last we cross death’s sea,
On we go, on we go,
Glorified we then shall be,
Onward let us go.
