Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Enlisted in the Christian ranks,
A faithful soldier be,
And side by side with loyal ones
March on (march on) to victory.

March on (march on) to victory,
March on (march on) to victory;
Beneath the banner of the Lord
March on (march on) to victory (march on).

2. The conflict may be hard and long,
But triumph is assured,
And Heaven holds a rich reward
For tri(trials) als here endured. [Refrain]

3. Relying on the Lord of Hosts,
March on to conquer sin,
And to your Leader gladly bear
Each trophy that you win. [Refrain]

4. The joy of conquest will be yours,
When you have overcome,
And after warfare, rest and peace
Await (await) in God’s bright home. [Refrain]
