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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative 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]
