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 Lift aloft the cross of Jesus,
Hold it high and strong;
Shout the name of him who saves us,
Swell the battle song.
Forward, soldiers, bold and fearless,
Hear the call of God;
Prove your courage in the conflict,
Tread where brave men trod.

Refrain:
Lift aloft the cross of Jesus,
Hold it high and strong;
Shout the name of him who saves us,
Swell the battle song.
Faith our shield, and hope our helmet,
Satan’s hosts we face;
Marshalled in the might of Jesus,
Win we by his grace.

2 Catch the order of our Captain,
Wield the Spirit’s sword;
Onward, fearless, press to conquer,
Slaying with his word.
They shall share the glad hosanna,
Who on him believe;
They shall ‘neath his royal banner
Crowns of life receive. [Refrain]
