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 “There’s a conflict on—will we stand the test?
‘In service for Christ,’ let us do our best;
With the Lord of Hosts as our strength and mighty,
Let us ne’er retreat—keep up the fight.”

“Onward, ever onward, trusting day by day,
Ours shall be the vict’ry, for Jesus leads the way;
Onward, ever onward, there’s a fight for us to win,
The world shall soon be conquer’d from the hosts of sin.

2 “For His glorious cause we will live or die;
‘In service for Christ,’ is the battle cry;
We can never lose for our cause is right,
Let us forward go—keep up the fight.” [Refrain]

3 “Till the vict’ry’s won and the crown’s in view,
‘In service for Christ,’ ring the watchword true;
We will look by faith for the dawning light,
Hold the cross on high—keep up the fight.” [Refrain]
