Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

1 Steadily advancing,
See the banner wave,
Jesus is the leader,
Forward march the true and brave;
Naught can e’er deter them,
All His loving face would see,
Follow His example,
On to victory.

Steadily advancing,
See the banner wave,
Steadily advancing,
Forward march the true and brave,
Steadily advancing,
Who will join the bright array?
Follow Christ the leader,
On to victory.

2 Steadily advancing,
Join the bright array,
Christ the Lord is calling,
Let all come without delay;
Do not fear the battle,
Let the Saviour’s will be done,
Follow where He leads you,
And the battle’s won. [Refrain]

3 Steadily advancing,
Fight till all is o’er,
You will share the mansions,
Where you’ll need to fight no more;
So while on your marching,
Always strive to do your best,
Soon you’ll be with Jesus,
With the ransom’d blest. [Refrain]
