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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

134. Victory is Near

1 A bugle note of triumph
Is sounding thro’ the land,
A note that stirs the nation
To help the temp’rance band;
And loyal, faithful workers,
Who toiled ‘mid hope and fear,
Proclaim with glad thanksgiving
That victory is near.

Pray on, and work together,
And fight without a fear;
We’ll give to God the glory,
That victory is near;
Pray on, and work together,
And fight without a fear;
We’ll give to God the glory,
That victory is near.

2 There once was but a handful
Who dared to strike a blow;
But now a mighty army
Is fighting with the foe.
New reinforcements daily
Are greeted with a cheer,
For fresh recruits tell plainly
That victory is near. [Refrain]

3 The prayers of wives and mothers,
The lifeblood of the brave,
The ceaseless toil of thousands
Unite the lost to save.
There is no gift too precious
To aid a cause so dear;
No sacrifice too costly
When victory is near. [Refrain]
