During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

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.
