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.
1 “Forward to battle!” hear now the call—
Some, fainter-hearted, backward fall,
Stay not to question,—here lies the way,
We’ve naught to do but obey.
Onward! Onward! ever pressing onward—
Bearing high our standard thro’ the thickest fight—
Onward! onward! ever pressing onward,
Till in triumph we shall stand in heave’n’s glorious light.
2 Stern is the conflict, yet we shall win,—
Tho’ for our foes we’ve death and sin,
Close by our side stands Jesus, our Lord,
We may rely on His word. [Refrain]
3 Soon ‘twill be o’er, the victory ours,
Tho’ now the front of battle lowers,
Trust we our Leader,—He’ll help us thro’,
He’s ever strong and true. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Sovereign Grace #153
