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 Press onward, Christian soldier, press onward to the prize!
Tho’ shadows deep may gather, and dismal clouds arise;
Sometime the rays of sunlight will pierce the deepest gloom,
And round thy rugged pathway
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom.

Press onward, onward,
The prize lies just beyond!
Press onward, onward,
Soon shall thy crown be won!
Press onward, onward!
Fear not, tho’ foes be strong;
Rejoice! for yours in glory
Shall be the victor’s song.

2 Press onward, Christian soldier, the Master knoweth best!
Thy way He hath appointed, and He will give thee rest;
His face must be reflected, His fire all dross consume,
Then, in His arms protected,
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom. [Refrain]

3 Press onward, Christian soldier, and guard thine armor strong!
The walls of sin are trembling, the fight will not be long;
The hosts of sin and darkness are marching to their doom,
Then in thy heart forever
The flow’rs of peace shall bloom. [Refrain]
