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 In the march of life, thro’ its toil and strife,
Like the tried and true before us,
Let us onward go, for the Lord, we know,
Spreads the banner of his mercy o’er us.
If we trust in Hi we shall fear no ill,
From His love no pow’r can sever;
With His armor bright we’ll defend the right
And abide in Him forever.

Refrain:
In the march of life, thro’ its toil and strife,
Like the tried and true before us,
Let us onward go, for the Lord, we know,
Spreads the banner of his mercy o’er us.

2 In the march of life, thro’ its toil and strife,
There are foes that oft assail us;
But we need not fear, for the Lord is near,
And his mighty arm will never fail us.
In the trying hour of the tempter’s power,
On the Lord our God relying,
We can march unharmed, we can march unmove,
With the keenest arrows flying. [Refrain]

3 Let our faith be strong as we march along,
Let us go without repining,
Tho’ the clouds may frown, yet beyond their gloom
We can see the golden sunlight shining.
When our race is run, and our work well done,
When we meet beyond the river,
We shall gain the crown, lay our burdens down,
And shall rest in joy forever. [Refrain]
