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 Pressing forward our cause to win,
Conqu’ring ever the hosts of sin,
God’s strong arm we are trusting in,
Battling for the right.

Forward all! let our watchword be,
Let it echo from sea to sea,
In His strength we shall victors be,
Battling for the right.

2 Pressing on ‘neath the noontide’s glow;
Caring not when the rough winds blow,
Pausing not till the foe lies low,
Battling for the right. [Refrain]

3 Pressing forward, a fearless band,
Always under the Lord’s command,
Till as victors we take our stand,
Battling for the right. [Refrain]
