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’re marching home to Canaan’s land,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
And soon we’ll join the angel band,
Marching in the beautiful light of God.

Refrain
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the light,
We are marching in the beautiful light of God.

2. We’re marching nearer day by day,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
To that sweet home where loved ones stay,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

3. Come march with us to Canaan’s shore,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
To dwell with Christ forevermore,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

4. Around the shining throne we’ll meet,
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
And cast our crowns at Jesus’ feet,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

5. Then to a mansion bright and fair!
Marching in the beautiful light of God,
The angels will attend us there,
Marching in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]
