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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 We are marching to a land above,
Beautiful land above, beautiful land above;
To a land where dwells eternal love,
The beautiful land above.

And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along;
While our glorious Captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.

We are marching to a land above,
Beautiful land above, beautiful land above;
To a land where dwells eternal love,
The beautiful land above, land above.

2 We are marching toward the city fair,
Beautiful city fair, beautiful city fair;
Where the angel-anthems fill the air,
The beautiful city fair.

And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along;
While our glorious Captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.

We are marching toward the city fair,
Beautiful city fair, beautiful city fair;
Where the angel-anthems fill the air,
The beautiful city fair, city fair.

3 We are marching to the home of God,
Beautiful home of God, beautiful home of God;
And our guide-book is his holy word,
The beautiful word of God.

And we sing a glad, triumphant song,
Marching along, marching along, marching along;
While our glorious Captain leads us on,
Marching along, marching along, marching along.

We are marching to the home of God,
Beautiful home of God, beautiful home of God;
And our guide-book is his holy word,
The beautiful word of God, word of God.
