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, soldiers! onward today!
Christ our Leader calls us away;
Quickly hasten forth to the field,
March with sword and shield.

Refrain
Forward, forward, thus saith the Lord,
Fear not, faint not, trust in his Word:
He will guard us, He will defend
Till the strife shall end.

2. Onward, soldiers! make no delay;
Hear the orders, hear and obey;
On to victory, on let us go,
Braving every foe. [Refrain]

3. Onward, soldiers! on for the right,
Let our banners wave in the light;
Soon the victor’s song we will sing,
Praise to God our King. [Refrain]
