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 Line up, line up for Jesus, go forward to the fight,
Against the pow’r of evil and for the cause of right.

Line up, line up for Jesus,
For Him a soldier be,
Yielding never,
Forward ever,
Marching on to victory,
Line up, line up for Jesus,
For Him a soldier be,
Till His flag be unfurled o’er the whole wide world;
Line up,
Line up,
Line up for Jesus.

2 Line up, line up for Jesus, no longer idle stand,
While precious souls are dying in sin on ev’ry hand. [Refrain]

3 Line up, line up for Jesus, oh waste no precious time
In drifting with the current of darkness, sin, and crime. [Refrain]

4 Line up, line up for Jesus, as one united band,
To spread the blessed gospel in ev’ry tribe and land. [Refrain]
