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

1 Soldiers of the cross, be loyal;
Ever true and earnest be!
Falt’ring not, nor weakly yielding,
You shall gain the victory!

Refrain:
You shall gain, shall gain the victory,
Though the struggle wild and fierce may be!
Soldiers of the cross, be loyal,
Be loyal, be loyal,
Soldiers of the cross, be loyal;
You shall gain the victory!

2 Soldiers of the cross, be loyal;
Hold the gospel banner high!
Marching on with hope and courage,
You shall gain the victory! [Refrain]

3 Soldiers of the cross, be loyal;
Trust the love that rules on high!
Ever bravely on advancing,
You shall gain the victory! [Refrain]
