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 Lo! the army of our King,
Marching on from sea to sea;
Loud their hallelujahs ring,
With the joy of victory.

“The world for Christ, and Christ for the world!”
We shout with glad acclaim,
We shout with glad acclaim,
Till ev’ry soul, from pole to pole,
Confess that glorious name.

2 Hear the marching order: “Go!
Preach the word in ev’ry clime,
Until all the earth below,
Echo with the strain sublime!” [Refrain]

3 See! the banner is unfurled;
See! it floats upon the breeze,
O’er the kingdoms of the world,
O’er the islands of the seas. [Refrain]
