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 Sunday-school army is marching along,
A band of young soldiers, undaunted and strong;
Jehovah our banner, salvation our song;
Our watchword the dear name of Jesus.

When the name of the blessed Redeemer we hear,
‘Tis as sweet as sweet music to listening ear;
Our standard lift higher, our banner we’ll wave
In honor of Jesus the mighty to save.

2 We’ve entered the service tho’ youthful in years,
The veterans we follow as true volunteers;
The watchword so precious till shouting with cheers,
Uplifting the standard of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 The ranks are increasing, still stronger they grow,
All over the world the glad tidings shall go;
Till nations in darkness the watchword shall know,
And trust in the dear name of Jesus. [Refrain]
