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

Onward, the foe to meet

Representative Text

1 Onward, the foe to meet, fearless we go;
Jesus our Captain leads the way!
Strong is His mighty arm, faithful and true;
Trusting in Him we’ll win the day.

Then we’ll march on to victory, march, a happy throng;
March on to victory, valiant, brave, and strong!
Hark! hark! the battle-cry sounds above our song—
Victory! victory! victory!

2 Clad in the armor bright, God doth provide
Breastplate and helmet, shield and sword;
Bravely we face the foe, boldly we cry—
Vict’ry is ours thro’ Christ the Lord. [Refrain]

3 See, see the mighty host strong on the field!
Shout, for the Lord shall make us free!
Let our hosannas ring loudly and long,
To Him who gives the victory. [Refrain]
