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

Representative Text

1 Onward, Christian soldier,
Onward to the fight,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right!
Hold the cross for Jesus,
As your banner high,
Never must you falter,
Never must you fly.

Chorus:
Onward, Christian soldier,
Onward to the fight,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right;
Hold the banner firmly,
Hold the banner firmly,
Hold the banner firmly,
Battle for the right.

2 Jesus Christ, your Saviour,
Says that you must win,
If ye do His bidding,
Look for strength to Him;
Clad in heav’nly armor,
You’ll o’ercome the foe,
Triumph o’er the tempter,
Jesus tells you so. [Chorus]

3 Then when warfare’s over,
When the fight is done,
When the foes are vanquish’d,
When the victory’s won,
Laying down your armor,
Clad in snowy white,
You shall reign with Jesus
In eternal light. [Chorus]
