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 Brave Christian soldiers, gallantly marching,
Joyful and bright, O sing all the way!
Gird on your armor, gird on your armor,
Jesus is leading and you must obey.

Cheerfully marching, faithfully marching,
Jesus will lead you all the bright way,
Joyfully singing, heartily singing,
Lift up your hearts to your Saviour today.

2 Your Captain loves you, tenderly loves you,
Kindly He speaks to all here today;
Lift up your voices, glad anthems raising,
He will be with you and point out the way. [Refrain]

3 March, valiant soldiers, onward to glory,
Hearts ever happy, hearts ever brave;
Jesus will guide you, vic’try awaits you,
Jesus is leading and Jesus can save. [Refrain]
