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 Christ is calling for His soldiers,
Who will bear the battle's brunt;
Those who will in ev'ry conflict
Keep the colors well in front;
Who will neither shirk nor falter,
Who will face e'en death and shame;
Who will keep the banner waving
For the glory of His name.

Chorus:
For the glory of His name, (His name,)
For the glory of His name; (His name;)
We will neither faint nor falter,
We will face e'en death and shame,
We will keep the banner waving
For the glory of His name.

2 We are soldiers in His service,
We are battling for the King;
Ev'ry heart must hold His image,
Ev'ry tongue the watchword sing.
We must all have grace and courage,
Keep the campfires all aflame,
We are beacon-lights in darkness
For the glory of His name. [Chorus]

3 There is need for consecration,
There is need for hearts sincere,
There is need for souls courageous
Who will never have a fear.
We will take our place as soldiers,
And with shouts of glad acclaim,
Charge the hosts of sin and Satan
For the glory of His name. [Chorus]
