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 The soldiers are gath’ring from near and from far,
The trumpets are sounding their call to the war;
And this is our slogan wherever we are:—
“The world, all the world for Jesus!”

All the wide world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
Sweep on victorious,
Conquer all glorious,
Take all the world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
All the wide world for Jesus!
Take all the wide, wide world for Jesus,
All the world!

2 God’s army is massing along the frontier;
Each soldier in battle a brave volunteer;
We’re charging the foe without doubt or a fear,
To take all the world for Jesus! [Refrain]

3 We’re marching along with a conquering host,
To follow our Captain, our glory, our boast;
Determined to win or to die at our post;—
The world, all the world for Jesus! [Refrain]
