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 Soldiers recruiting in the ranks of the Lord,
Fall into line, fall into line;
Gird on the armor, both the shield and the sword,
Fall into line, fall into line.

Refrain:
Rally, then; rally, then; rally for the right;
God needs the brave and true;
Rally, then; rally, then; rally in your mighty;
God is calling you.

2 There is a battle to be fought in the right,
Fall into line, fall into line;
And we can win it if we strike in our might,
Fall into line, fall into line. [Refrain]

3 Earnest the conflict, needing brave men and strong,
Fall into line, fall into line;
We will not falter though the struggle be long,
Fall into line, fall into line. [Refrain]
