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.

We are toiling up the way

We are toiling up the way

Tune: [We are toiling up the way] (33321)
Published in 16 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We are toiling up the way,
Narrow way, narrow way;
We have journeyed many a day
T'ward the Kingdom;
T'ward the distant shining land,
Golden land, golden land,
Where the heavenly harpers stand,
In the Kingdom.

Still we sing, Christ our King
Walks with us the weary way,
And the shining angels wait,
Angels wait, angels wait,
To unbar the golden gate
Of the Kingdom.

3 We shall gather home at last,
Sorrow past, sorrow past,
We shall hold our jewels fast
In the Kingdom;
We shall dwell in perfect light,
Holy light, holy light,
Never dimmed by tears at night,
In the Kingdom.
