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 Little soldiers in the field,
Fighting for the Lord;
Christ, our captain and our shield,
Guards us with His word.

Refrain:
Little friends, come along,
Join our youthful band;
We are marching, marching on
T’ward the happy land.

2 See the glorious banner wave,
Love, our motto true;
All our soldiers, good and brave,
Keep it full in view. [Refrain]

3 Whosoever will may come
And go with us now;
Christ, our captain, shelters all
In the narrow way. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll reach the shining land,
See our Savior’s face;
For each one of our great band
He’s prepared a place. [Refrain]
