We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Look forward to victory, soldiers of Jesus,
Tho’ long be the conflict with legions of sin,
The promise is given by Him who has conquered,
That those who believe in His power shall win.

Look forward to victory, Soldiers of Jesus,
The Gospel’s bright banner be freely unfurled;
Look forward to victory, soldiers of Jesus,
The Lord who you follow shall reign o’er the world.

2 Look forward to victory, be not disheartened,
Tho’ many and strong be the foes that you face,
The kingdom of Jesus endureth forever,
And error at last to the truth must give place. [Refrain]

3 Look forward to victory, look to the gladness,
That comes when all wearisome striving is o’er,
Untold shall the joy be of those to whom Jesus
Says, Rest and abide in my peace evermore. [Refrain]
