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 Stand for the right, strong in his might!
Loyal hearts with gladness forward pressing;
Faithful, obey his will alway,
Thanking God each day for ev’ry blessing.

Loyal hearts and true, march on,
Forward in the narrow way;
Lifting up his cross, march on,
Follow Jesus day by day.

2 Onward with song, conquer the wrong,
Follow now the Captain of salvation;
Thro’ toil and pain, thro’ loss and gain,
Tell his love to ev’ry tribe and nation. [Refrain]

3 Steadfast and true, willing to do,
March along, the conflict will be glorious;
Tumults shall cease, rest come with peace,
Soon the cross of Christ will be victorious. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
