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

Battle hymn of the Epworth League

Representative Text

1. Mine eyes have seen the tokens of another Pentecost,
Mine ears have heard the gathering of a dedicated host,
My soul has felt the presence of the promised Holy Ghost,
Our youth are marching on.

Look up, lift up, night is fleeing!
Look up, lift up, day is breaking!
Look up, lift up, victory cometh!
Our youth are marching on.

2. There’s a fire of consecration that is kindling in our youth,
They are vowing hearty service to the Master and His truth,
Their faith is pure and ardent, and their works are Gospel proof,
Our youth are marching on. [Refrain]

3. There’s a fervor of revival burning bright in many hearts,
There’s a glow of generous loyalty their noble purpose starts,
’Tis the spirit of the fathers and the zeal that Christ imparts,
Our youth are marching on. [Refrain]

4. They unfurl Immanuel’s banner, and behold, the thousands rise!
They are looking up in prayer to Him enthroned beyond the skies,
They are lifting up their brother from the ruin where he lies,
Our youth are marching on. [Refrain]
