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 Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And he, our Commander and Friend,
Will help us each one to be faithful,
And lead us safe on to the end;
Wherever the post of our duty
Let none of us falter nor fear;
Remember no danger can harm us
When Jesus our Saviour is near.

Refrain:
Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And he, our Commander and Friend,
Will help us each one to be faithful,
And lead us safe on to the end.

2 Oh, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And promise to follow him still;
A place in the Sunday-school army
Today we are happy to fill;
Yes, we are young soldiers for Jesus,
And proudly our colors we show;
Our watchword is RIGHT and PRESS ONWARD;
We dread not the field nor the foe. [Refrain]

3 Our pathway may sometimes be rugged,
Our marching may sometimes be long,
But gladly our footsteps shall ever
Keep time to the voice of our song;
And oh, when the warfare is over,
And Jesus our Saviour shall come,
How sweetly we’ll rest on his bosom,
In Eden, dear Eden, our home. [Refrain]
