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're a happy band of pilgrims

Representative Text

1 We're a happy band of pilgrims, bound for glory,
We are marching in the bright and shining way;
Come, oh, come and sing with us salvation's story
Come, and seek the land of everlasting day.

We're a happy band of pilgrims, hallelujah!
We will sing redeeming mercy, o'er and o'er;
We are marching on to glory, hallelujah,
In the blessed path that shineth more and more.

2 Tho' the mighty powers of sin shall oft assail us,
Tho' the subtle snare be spread around our feet,
Let us look to Jesus, he will never fail us,
We are trusting in his promise, sure and sweet. [Chorus]

3 Tho' we walk at times beneath the clouds of sorrow,
Still the bow of blessing spans the heaven's o'er,
At the dawning of the glad and golden morrow,
We shall stand beyond the shadows evermore. [Chorus]
