Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Come with hearts rejoicing on this happy day,
For a mighty army stands in bright array,
Hearts both brave and loyal, soldiers of the King,
Ready for the battle, hear the trumpets ring.

On then, gallant comrades, never fearful be,
Jesus our great Captain, leads to victory;
On then, gallant comrades, never fearful be,
Jesus, our great Captain, leads to victory.

2 Armor bright and shining, breast-plate tried and true,
Helmet of salvation, courage then renew;
Proudly waves our banner, emblem of the free,
By this sign we conquer through eternity. [Refrain]

3 See the prize before us–immortality,
Forward ever pressing, never falter we,
Till our notes of triumph swelling to the sky,
Christ our King and Saviour, laud and magnify. [Refrain]
