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

Representative Text

1 Hear the loud trumpet-call,
That is sounding for all
Who for Jesus are bravely contending;
From the morn to the night
Let us urge on the fight,
The cause of our Saviour defending.

Let us heed the trumpet call,
Sounding far, to one and all;
Lend a hand, a heart and voice,
Right will win, rejoice, rejoice.

2 Tho’ the ranks of foe
Into battle may go,
And may threaten the cause of our Master,
They shall certainly meet
With a signal defeat,
And shall fly from the field of disaster. [Refrain]

3 Let us trust in the word
Of our conquering Lord,
Let us question His promises never;
We shall scatter the foe,
If believing we go,
He will lead us to victory ever. [Refrain]
