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 Call’d to service royal,
Strong in courage loyal,
Where the crimson banners go,
Follow on nor fear a foe;
Chosen for His glory,
Tell His wondrous story,
Called to serve a conqu’ring One,
We follow on.

Forward, then forward, for He shall be our stay;
Onward, then onward, we tread the kingly way;
Forward, then forward, to conquest shall He bring;
Onward, then onward still, the chosen of the King.

2 Call’d to joys unbounding,
Love is e’er surrounding,
Light of heav’nly hope divine,
O’er our path for aye shall shine;
Crowned with boundless blessing,
We His name confessing,
Called to joy that ne’er can dim,
We follow Him. [Refrain]

3 Call’d to crown immortal,
At the shining portal,
Till in heav’nly dwelling place,
We behold Him face to face;
Bright the hopes that cheer us,
God is ever near us,
Called to Him divine reward,
We serve our Lord. [Refrain]
