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

Representative Text

1 Soldiers of Immanuel, go forward in His name,
Holy warfare waging, pow’rs of sin engaging;
Lift His royal standard and His truth divine proclaim,
Till the world shall own Him King.

Go forth, go forth, and battle for the right,
Defeat the foe and put his host to flight;
Ye soldiers of Immanuel, press on
Until the victory is won.

2 Soldiers of Immanuel, go forward to the fray,
Songs of triumph singing, shouts of vict’ry ringing;
Follow your Commander, He is with you every day;
Onward! is the battle cry. [Refrain]

3 Soldiers of Immanuel, the battle soon shall cease;
In a home of splendor we shall homage render
Unto Jesus, He who is the glorious Prince of Peace,
When we lay our armor down. [Refrain]
