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

The Young People's Army

Full Text

1 March along together firm and true,
For lo, the world is ever watching you;
Be brave and bold upon the battle-field,
Determined that the foe shall yield.
Long and loud the bugle-call is sounding!
Sin and wrong are everywhere abounding,
“Forward!” all along the line resounding,
Bids us march away.

Refrain:
March along together firm and true,
For lo, the world is ever watching you;
Be brave and bold upon the battle-field,
Determined that the foe shall yield.

2 On we go with armor shining bright,
With sword in hand to battle for the right;
United in the service of the Lord,
We’re marching at our Captain’s word.
Valiant soldiers of the Lord are leading,
Earnestly for help the church is pleading,
Slowly backward see the foe receding,
Forward march today. [Refrain]

3 True as steel, and loyal to our King,
We’ll fight until the shouts of vict’ry ring
From north to south, from east and from the west,
Till Christ is everywhere confessed.
Storm the forts of sin and desolation;
Soldiers brave, renew your obligation,
And with earnest pray’r and supplication,
Forward march today. [Refrain]
