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.

Representative Text

1 The Saviour leads His faithful on
To battle for the right;
Their mottos is “Thy will be done,”
The hosts of sin they’ll smite.
No fears alarm, no terrors stop,
They go with steady tread;
And none shall by the wayside drop,
For Christ is at the head.

Refrain:
Christ is the conqueror,
Christ is the conqueror,
O glorious conqueror,
Who leads to victory.

2 Before them is the precious cross;
They glory in its fame;
It lifts their thoughts from earthly dross,
To think of Jesus’ name.
From conquest unto victory,
Press forth the mighty throng;
The hosts of Satan all must flee,
Before the victor’s song. [Refrain]

3 Their tongues the name of Jesus sounds;
The name they love so well.
Within their hearts His love abounds;
Forever there to dwell.
O who will join this bright array,
This army of the Lord?
O who will now the call obey,
Be governed by his word? [Refrain]
