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.

Representative Text

1 We are children of a King,
Marching on to Zion;
O the songs of joy we sing,
On our journey home;
Will you go with us today,
Marching on to Zion,
Where the King will lead the way,
On our journey home?

Zion, Zion,
Marching on to Zion;
Soon we’ll enter the pearly gate,
Soon we’ll gather home.

2 Toil and danger we shall meet,
Marching on to Zion;
Thorns will pierce our weary feet,
On our journey home;
Yet the King His own will cheer,
Marching on to Zion;
O how oft His words we hear,
On our journey home. [Refrain]

3 True and faithful let us be,
Marching on to Zion,
Till our eyes the King shall see,
On our journey home;
Hark, He bids us watch and wait,
Marching on to Zion;
Till we reach the pearly gates,
On our journey home. [Refrain]
