Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 marching on to glory,
Telling out the wondrous story
Of the blessed, risen, ever living Christ;
How he came and brought salvation,
To the lost of ev’ry nation,
And his precious blood for all our sins sufficed.

Marching, marching on to glory,
Marching with our banners all unfurl’d,
Over all victorious,
With a hope all glorious,
We will herald Jesus to the World!

2 We are marching on with gladness,
Knowing naught of care or sadness,
Hailing Jesus ever as our glorious Light;
We will never cease our praying,
While his blessed will obeying,
And will fight on, keeping faith and armor bright. [Refrain]

3 O the joy that’s set before us,
Since no foe can triumph o’er us,
Nor a leader ever stand against our Lord.
We will look up, lift up ever,
We will falter not—no, never,
‘Till the world shall crown him King, with one accord. [Refrain]
