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

The Children's Crusade

Representative Text

1. Go call ye the children, we want them all
To join in our army both great and small;
We're fighting to conquer the host of sin,
With Christ for our Captain we're sure to win.

Come, all ye children, without delay,
Enlist in the army of the Lord today;
Oh, come then help us with all your might,
To conquer evil by doing right.

2. There's love from our Captain to children dear,
Then why not the call to his army hear?
Be ready today to be mustered in,
And take a firm stand as a foe of sin. [Chorus]

3. By day and by night we will battle wrong,
And follow our Leader with shout and song;
Then come and his banner of love we'll wave,
And some from the strongholds of sin we'll save. [Chorus]
