Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Blessed host of the Lord, with your banners march along,
Tune your hearts and your tongues, let the gospel be your song;
Though your work may be great, from its duties never fly.
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by.

Refrain:
Sound the trump, sound the trump of the gospel far and near,
Sound it forth, sound it forth, bid the sleeping nations hear;
Sound it forth undismayed, though the tempter’s arrows fly,
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by. [Refrain]

2 Blessed host of the Lord, look away to yonder star
Shining down on your path from the Eden land afar;
Lift your souls, lift your eyes, for the day is drawing nigh;
Thanks to God, the vict’ry’s coming by and by. [Refrain]

3 Blessed host of the Lord, on His promised word depend,
Lo, His arm for your aid shall in mighty power descend;
And the ranks of the foe shall before your banners fly,
God will give to you the vict’ry by and by. [Refrain]
