Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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.

Refrain:
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]
