During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1. Forward, men and brothers!
Hear the Savior’s call!
Countless souls are waiting,
There is work for all;
Shall we linger idly
While the days pass on?
God and angels beckon;
Forward, every one!

Forward, men and brothers!
Hear the Savior’s call!
Countless souls are waiting,
There is work for all.

2. Ours a royal standard,
Ours a glorious strife,
Winning men from evil
To a holy life;
Jesus Christ the Captain,
Faith in Him our shield;
Hasten forward, brothers,
Till sin’s bulwarks yield! [Refrain]

3. Courage, falter never,
In Christ’s strength be strong;
Now the strife and danger,
Now the triumph song;
Strike the shackles quickly,
With the mighty sword;
Forward, men and brothers,
Conquer by His Word! [Refrain]
