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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Move forward! valiant men and strong,
Ye who have prayed and labored long;
The time has come for you to rise,
For lo! the sun rolls up the skies.

Move forward, move forward,
All along the line,
Move forward, move forward,
The light begins to shine.

2 Move forward! each and every one,
The golden harvest is begun,
Ye reapers, come from glen and glade
And wield the sickle’s glitt'ring blade. [Chorus]

3 Move forward! reaping as you move!
Angels are watching from above!
Around are witnesses a host;
Arouse ye now and save the lost. [Chorus]

4 Move forward! day will die full soon;
How quickly evening follows noon!
Now is the time to work and pray;
Let glory crown the dying day. [Chorus]
