We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 We are marching up the hillside and the trail leads home;
We are marching up the hillside and the winding trail leads home;
Yes, sometimes we’re finding that the trail is a-winding,
But we don’t mind, no we don’t mind, for the trail leads home.

Refrain:
We’re on the homeward trail, we’re on the homeward trail,
Singing as we go, going home.
We’re on the homeward trail, we’re on the homeward trail,
Singing, singing, singing, singing, going home.

2 We are marching on our journey and the trail leads home;
We are marching on our journey and the winding trail leads home;
Jesus’ feet were bleeding when he took the trail that’s leading
To the homeland, to the homeland, for the trail leads home.

3 By and by we’ll strike the valley but the trail leads home;
‘Tis the shadow of the valley but the winding trail leads home;
Jesus will be with me when I’m walking through the valley,
Through the valley, through the valley, for the trail leads home.
