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

O March, March Away

O march, march away, the bugle now is calling

Representative Text

1 Oh, march, march away, the bugle now is calling
For volunteers; ‘mid song and cheers,
Oh, march, march away;
The Saviour will your captain be
And lead you forth to victory,
For sin’s your enemy,
Then march, march away.

2 Oh, march, march away, the battle now is raging;
Let armor shine, fall into line,
And march, march away;
The enemy is bold and strong,
But with your shield of prayer and song
You’ll win the foe ere long,
Then march, march away.

3 Oh, march, march away, have faith in Christ, your leader,
You ne’er will fall, though foes assail,
Then march, march away;
He’ll lead you to that golden shore
Where sin and fear molest no more,
To meet friends gone before,
Then march, march away.

4 Oh, march, march away; fear not the toil and danger,
With Him so dear forever near,
Oh, march, march away;
He’ll take the wounded to His breast,
He’ll grant you every good request,
He’ll give you peace and rest,
Then march, march away.
