We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
