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 valiant soldiers marching on,
We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
In the way our blessed Saviour’s gone;
We’re marching to the better land.

Refrain:
Marching ever onward,
Marching ever onward,
Marching ever onward,
To glorious victory:
With our noble leader, tried and true,
We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
And the cross of Jesus e’er in view;
We’re marching to the better land.

2 With the Gospel banner now unfurled,
We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
Bearing glorious news to all the world;
We’re marching to the better land. [Refrain]

3 Over there in Afric’s sunny land,
We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
And behold, on India’s coral strand;
We’re marching to the better land. [Refrain]

4 Victories in China and Japan,
We’re marching on, we’re marching on,
Europe and America in the vain;
We’re marching to the better land. [Refrain]
