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 The long roll-call is sounding,
Let Israel awake!
And ev’ry heart responding,
New zeal and courage take,
With all upon the altar
And spirit all aglow,
We cannot stay nor falter
When duty bids us go,
We cannot stay nor falter
When duty bids us go.

2 We’ll find the way retarded
By lions in the path,
And ev’ry stronghold guarded
By mighty men of Gath.
But if these things affright us
When shall the way be free?
When Satan shall invite us—
And that will never be,
When Satan shall invite us—
And that will never be.

3 If Christians did not weaken
When nearing Satan’s grounds,
His kingdom should be shaken
From centre to its bounds.
Our weakness shall not matter,
Unless it comes of doubt;
One shall a thousand scatter,
And two ten thousand rout,
One shall a thousand scatter,
And two ten thousand rout.

4 The hour is here for moving,
Wait not the morrow’s sun;
The church our faith is proving,
The vict’ry must be won.
Then gird the armor brother,
To loiter would be shame;
Press close to one another,
And forward in His name!
Press close to one another,
And forward in His name!
