We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Go forward Christian soldiers,
To fight the glorious fight;
God will Himself uphold you,
Then battle for the right.

Go forth ye Christian soldiers,
The victory to gain;
Then fight like valiant warriors
Till all His foes are slain.

2 Go forward Christian soldiers,
Lift God’s bright banner high;
Gird on thyself God’s armor,
The shield of faith keep nigh. [Refrain]

3 Go forward Christian soldiers,
Thy feet with truth have shod;
Be crowned with God’s salvation,
Thy sword the Word of God. [Refrain]

4 Go forward Christian soldiers,
Be strong to face the foe;
Thou’lt surely gain the victory,
Then forward Christian, go. [Refrain]
