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.

Representative Text

1 A hymn of praise today we raise
To Christ, our living King,
And in reply the bending sky
Shall with its echo ring.
With heart and voice we will rejoice
Our praises to prolong,
Till ev’ry one beneath the sun
Shall learn our joyful song.

Onward, forward,
With happy hearts and free;
Onward, forward
To glorious victory!
While proudly floats our banner bright
O’er ev’ry sea and land,
To win the world for Jesus Christ,
United we will stand.

2 Each foe we meet we will defeat,
With weapons sharp and strong,
Till all shall yield, and from the field
Shall fly the vanquished throng.
Each gospel dart shall pierce apart
The armor of our foe,
And ours shall be the victory,
Wherever we may go. [Refrain]

3 With zeal imbued, and strength renewed,
We’ll gird us for the fray;
With courage bold the right uphold,
Till dawns the perfect day;
When strife shall cease, and perfect peace
On ev’ry heart shall fall;
Till all unite in holy rite
To crown Him Lord of all. [Refrain]
