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.

A royal army marching

Representative Text

1 A royal army, marching
Against the pow'rs of wrong,
As loyal as the sunbeams,
We sing our battle song;
Enlisted for the conflict
We proudly march and sing,
Our cause the cause of Jesus,
Hosanna to our King.

Marching onward, ever onward,
With a song we press along,
In the service of our King.

2 A mighty army, faithful
Each soldier, brave and true,
We rally round the standard,
And on our way pursue;
We have no cause for doubting,
The way is full of cheer,
Our Captain is before us,
We have no need to fear. [Chorus]

3 A valiant christian army,
For right we bravely stand;
Our victory is certain,
For Jesus has command;
"Up, onward" is our motto:
We do not fear the foe,
The crown is just before us,
Rejoicing on we go. [Chorus]
