Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Jesus is our Captain, we His soldiers true,
And we must be ready, His commands to do;
Let us hasten forward, fighting till we win,
We must follow Jesus, we must conquer sin.

Jesus is our Captain, we His soldiers true,
We must hasten forward His commands to do.

2 Evil, like a barrier, stands on ev’ry side,
Strong is Satan’s army, stronger still our Guide;
We must never waver, we must faithful be,
Let us follow Jesus, on to victory. [Refrain]

3 Christ, our Lord, has broken Satan’s cruel sway,
Since the ever glorious resurrection day;
We may also conquer, in the daily fight,
As we follow Jesus, trusting in His might. [Refrain]

4 Fierce the battle rages, mighty is the foe,
But our Captain cheers us as we onward go;
Sorrow will be ended when He comes again,
And with endless praises we shall greet Him then. [Refrain]
