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 Like a strong and mighty army,
With a firm and fearless tread,
We are marching, blessed Saviour,
By thy Word and Spirit led;
We are going forth to conquer,
And wherever we may be,
We will cheer each other onward
With a song of victory!

We will battle with the world for thee,
And the standard of the cross we’ll bear;
We will conquer thro’ thy Word,
Then go home to our reward,
And be gathered with the dear ones there.

2 Like a strong and mighty army
May we keep our colors bright;
In Thy cause, O blessed Master,
May we all as one unite;
Then, believing in Thy promise
“As our day our strength shall be,”
How our foes will fear and tremble
At the song of victory! [Refrain]

3 Looking up as thou hast taught us
To thy dwelling in the skies,—
Lifting up the souls that perish
From the death that never dies;
Consecrated now and ever
To the work, O Lord, are we,
‘Till we enter life eternal
With the song of victory! [Refrain]
