Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 My spirit ne’er will quail,
My Captain cannot fail,
For victory, victory is the thrilling cry.
The Savior leads the way,
We’ll win in ev’ry fray,
For victory, victory is coming by and by.

Sound the battle cry,
Lift your voices high,
Follow Christ thro’ flood or flame!
We’ll march without a fear,
For He is ever near,
With victory, victory in His name!

2 Sweet music fills the air,
The trumpets loudly blare,
For victory, victory is the cry we hear.
It bids our courage rise,
And makes us fear despise,
For victory, victory triumphant now is near. [Refrain]

3 The standard now unfurled
Is seen by all the world,
For victory, victory is the saint’s reward.
Come, march beneath its folds!
A wondrous pow’r it holds,
For victory, victory is our thro’ Christ our Lord. [Refrain]
