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

GOD is keeping his soldiers fighting,
Evermore we shall conquerors be;
All the hosts of Hell are uniting,
But we’re sure to have victory.
Though to beat us they’ve been trying,
Our colours still are flying,
And our flag shall wave for ever,
For we never will give in.

Refrain:
No, we never, never, never will give in,
No we won’t! No we won’t!
No, we never, never, never will give in,
For we mean to have the victory for ever.

2 We will follow our conquering Saviour,
From before him Hell’s legions shall fly;
Our battalions never shall waver,
They’re determined to conquer or die.
From holiness and Heaven
We never will be driven;
We will stand our ground for ever,
For we never will give in.

3 With salvation for every nation,
To the ends of the earth we will go,
With a free and full salvation,
All the power of the cross we’ll show.
We’ll tear Hell’s throne to pieces,
And win the world for Jesus,
We’ll be conquerors for ever,
For we never will give in.
