Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Like an army we are moving
Steadily, and at command,
Thro’ a strange and hostile country,
To a better, brighter land;
Full equipped, courageous, loyal,
With the gospel firmly shod,
We are marching on to glory,
To the city of our God.

Refrain:
With a firm determination,
And a trust that shall not wane,
For the King we have enlisted,
And are marching in His train;
Our song of joy is ever ringing,
While moving up the great highway
To a city bright, eternal,
In a land of cloudless day,
To a city bright, eternal,
In a land of cloudless day.

2 Many foes concealed about us,
Would invade our ranks today,
And with subtile agitation,
Seek to turn us from the way;
But our Leader, on before us,
All their secret cunning knows,
And His wisdom is forever
Proof against the chief of foes. [Refrain]

3 In the light our banner gleaming,
Fills the heart with love and cheer,
And the voice of our Redeemer,
Quiets every doubt and fear;
Shoulder pressed to shoulder ever,
With a tramp, tramp, tramp we move,
Onward, upward to the city
Built for us thro’ Jesus’ love. [Refrain]
