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 There are foes that must be conquered,
There are battles we must win;
There are lands that must be taken,
That are going down in sin,
Let us enter in the struggle,
Ever march upon our way,
We must take the world for God and win the day.

Chorus:
On to victory!
On to victory!
On to victory!
The foe must die!
On to victory!
On to victory!
On to victory!
We'll conquer by and by!

2 There are hosts of sin before us
That extend from sea to sea;
There are many still in bondage,
There are slaves that must be free;
Let us all be up and doing,
Ever found within the fray,
We must take the world for God and win the day. [Chorus]

3 There are many dear ones dying,
They are falling ev'rywhere;
Let us bravely go and help them,
They are lost and need our care;
Fall in line, prepare for battle,
Let us fight as well as pray,
We must take the world for God and win the day. [Chorus}
