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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Down the busy street come the marching feet
Of the soldiers on their way,
And the music hums from their rolling drums
As they pass to meet the fray;
All the city’s pride, all the splendid tide
Of its riches and its power
Cannot hold their ear while the music clear
Calls them forth to battle’s hour.

2 Through the busy world, with their flags unfurled
March the soldiers of the Right;
Through the din of things still their music rings,
Calling onward to the fight;
Here are wealth and power, here is pleasure’s hour,
Dot the brave ranks falter? Nay!
Forward, row on row, still the warriors go;
May our great Lord speed their way!
