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.

Representative Text

1 Onward comes a legion,
And with joy they sin;
See upon their banner;
“Soldiers of the King.”

Soldiers of the King of Glory!
Publishing salvation’s story!
Wondrous tidings do ye bring,
Noble soldiers of the King!

2 Mighty is their armor,
Loud their plaudits ring;
Singing praise eternal,
To their Lord and King. [Refrain]

3 Onward, noble legion,
To the Grand Review,
Where the King of Glory
Waits to welcome you. [Refrain]
