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

We're Marching Home to God

Representative Text

1 We’re under marching orders, each command we will obey,
When our Captain’s word is given we will boldly step away,
We’re marching up to glory and our Savior leads the way,
We’re marching home to God.

Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
As we go marching on!

2 Whene’er our courage falters and the way seems hard and long,
We will press still bravely onward and the way we’ll cheer with song,
We’ll reach the goal in safety for to Jesus we belong,
We’re marching home to God. [Refrain]

3 Some day we’ll cross the river and we’ll reach the golden strand;
We will dwell with Christ, our Savior, in that bright and happy land.
We will shout His praise forever, as before the throne we stand,
We’re marching home to God. [Refrain]
