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, forward!
Forward go, for the Lord is with thee,
He is thy life, thy light, thy joy;
Forward, forward!
Forward go, for the Lord is with thee,
Mighty thy foes to destroy.

Refrain:
Heralds of the gospel,
Messengers of mercy,
Children of the kingdom,
High the colors of Zion show;
Followers of Jesus,
Armies of Jehovah,
Church of God triumphant,
Rise and forth to the vict’ry go.
Forward, forward!
Forward, , ye brave hearts,
Forward, ye true hearts, at his word;
Forward, ye heroes,
Forward, ye conq’rors of the Lord.

2 Forward, forward!
Forward, go, for the morn is breaking,
Swiftly the shadows fly away;
Forward, forward!
Forward go, for the King in splendor
Rises and conquers the day. [Refrain]
