We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 On, Christian soldier, onward now go,
Sin lurks about thee, conquer the foe,
Faith in your Captain, now and alway,
Then on, Christian soldier, on to the fray!

Onward now go,
Onward to conquer the foe,
Press on, Christian soldier, your Leader obey,
Press on to victory.

2 On, Christian soldier, colors unfurled,—
Marching together, conquer the world,
Keep His bright banner floating above,
Then tell to the world the dear Saviour’s love. [Refrain]

3 On, Christian soldier, joyful then be,
Shouting the song of His victory,
No thought of danger, His word obey,
Then keep in the path, nor halt by the way. [Refrain]

4 On, Christian soldier, trust in your Lord
Ever upholding His holy word,
Conquered the foe, your battle then won,
Oh hear Jesus sweetly saying, “well done.” [Refrain]
