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 Marching onward in the battle ‘gainst the foe,
We will sing with loud hosannas as we go,
We will follow after Jesus all the way,
He will lead us on to vict’ry day by day.

Marching, marching, over ev’ry sin,
With our Captain we will go, in the conflict we shall win;
Marching, marching, singing as we go,
We shall triumph over ev’ry foe.

2 Marching onward we’ll be ever true and brave,
Striving daily some poor sinful soul to save,
We will march in solid phalanx ‘gainst the wrong,
For in numbers and the Spirit we are strong. [Refrain]

3 Marching onward with our banner still unfurled,
We will take for Christ the nations of the world,
So we’ll keep in step with Jesus and the Word,
Until ev’ry race on earth His love has heard. [Refrain]

4 Marching onward we will reach the better land,
Where with all His ransomed people we will stand;
May each crown be gemmed with jewels fair and bright,
Happy souls we led from sin to heaven’s light. [Refrain]
