Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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.

1 O Christians, leagued together
To battle for the right,
Arise and don your armor,
Put the foe to flight!
We’ve given our allegiance
To serve without surcease
The mighty Lord of armies
And gentle Prince of Peace.

All hail, our glorious Saviour!
We march where thou hast trod,
To seek thy house of triumph,
The city of our God.

2 Then 'onward' be the war-cry;
And onward still, so long
As we have self to conquer,
Souls to cheer with song.
Let sound the martial music,
Ring out the bugle call
To rally for the conflict
Our people one and all. [Refrain]

3 We proudly bear as banner
A cross within the heart,
To show that we have chosen
Christ, the better part.
Then joy and peace and comfort
Shall blossom as a rose,
Until our earthly blessings
The worth of heaven disclose. [Refrain]
