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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

1 Our Captain’s call is sounding,
O brother, find your place;
He issues marching orders,
And gives supporting grace.

Then hasten to the battle,
Go find and fill your place;
What tho’ thy life be taken,
He died once in your place;
Go now, go now,
Go now and fill your place.

2 He calls us forth to battle,
To do His holy will;
He’ll cheer and help us daily
His orders to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 The vict’ry lies before us,
And we are sure to win;
He promised to be with us
In conflict with our sin. [Refrain]
