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

Glory, Glory!

Representative Text

1 We have heard the wail of women, we have seen the fathers fall,
We have known the bloom of beauty on the cheek of youth to pall;
We have suffer’d from the demon more than word or song can tell,
Yet, God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on!

2 We have join’d our hearts together as we face a common foe;
Many hearts at many altars pray for us as forth we go,
In the name of God we’ll triumph, and the traffic overthrow,
For God is marching on. [Refrain]

3 Do you hear the tramp of millions bringing up the grand reserve?
For the thickest of the onset gather faith, and pluck, and nerve,
While your lov’d ones watch, all tearful, from your duty never swerve,
For God is marching on. [Refrain]

4 And at last you’ll hear the chorus, swelling up from land and sea,
Chanting earth’s glad morn of promise, from th’accursed traffic free,
And the world will ring with gladness for your glorious victory,
Our God is marching on. [Refrain]
