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 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Sword in hand, bravely stand for the right today;
Rally ‘round our standard, sound the battle cry,
Lift the cross of Jesus, wave its banner high.

Refrain:
Forward, Christian soldiers, trusting in the Lord,
Leading on to victory;
Hallelujah! we shall sing, hallelujah to the King!
Leading on to victory.

2 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Bold and strong, wake the song, rank by rank today;
See the foe advancing, hear the trumpet-call;
Steady now and fearless, forward, one and all. [Refrain]

3 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Lo! a star from afar, shines for us today;
‘Tis our Royal Master, bending from the skies,
To His faithful servants reaching forth the prize. [Refrain]

4 Forward, Christian soldiers, marching on our way,
Look above, crowns of love, wait the promised day;
Follow our Commander till the war is past,
Then, with Him in glory, live and reign at last. [Refrain]
