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.

Representative Text

1. Go forth at Christ’s command,
Go forth to ev’ry land,
Through loyalty to Christ
Through loyalty to Christ;
Let strong your efforts be
To gain the victory,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ.

Refrain
Onward, onward, army of the Lord!
There’s naught to fear while trusting in His Word;
Go forth to fight the wrong,
And shout the victor’s song,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ.

2. Be brave to help them win
Who strive to conquer sin,
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Point out the path of light,
Be strong to do the right,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]

3. See! Satan’s banners wave,
O haste the lost to save
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Beat back the hosts of sin,
Press on the fight to win,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]

4. O children of the free!
Let this your watchword be:
Through loyalty to Christ,
Through loyalty to Christ;
Let hills and valleys ring,
While men and angels sing,
Through loyalty, yes, loyalty,
Through loyalty to Christ. [Refrain]
