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.

March on, my soul, with strength

March on, my soul, with strength

Tune: CHRISTCHURCH (Steggall)

Representative Text

1 March on, my soul, with strength,
march forward, void of fear;
he who has led will lead,
through each succeeding year;
and as you journey on your way,
his hand shall hold you day by day.

2 March on, my soul, with strength,
in ease you dare not dwell;
your Master calls you forth;
then up, and serve him well!
Take up your cross, take up your sword,
and fight the battles of your Lord!

3 March on, my soul, with strength,
with strength, but not your own;
the conquest you shall gain,
through Christ your Lord alone;
his grace shall power your feeble arm,
his love preserve you safe from harm.

4 March on, my soul, with strength,
from strength to strength march on;
warfare shall end at length,
all foes be overthrown.
And then, my soul, if faithful now,
the crown of life awaits your brow.
