Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 We'll watch and pray and labor ev'ry day,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
Till He shall come to call His children home,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Looking to our Lord, trusting in His word,
Marching when He bids us go forward;
By His strong hand we'll pass the Canaan land,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

2 With Christ as guide no evil can betide,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
We'll trust His grace till we behold His face,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Love withing our heart bids all fear depart,
Winning other souls for the Master;
He's always near our pilgrim way to cheer,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

3 With shield and sword we'll battle for the Lord,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
We'll trust our King us victory to bring,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Striving for the right, putting foes to flight,
Following our Guide where He leads us;
By His great might we'll conquer in the fight,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

4 The vict'ry won, we'll glorify the Son,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
The "blood-wash'd throng" will welcome us ere long,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Ready! be our cry, when the Lord is night,
Calling us to lay down our armor;
Our warfare, past we'll gather home at last,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
