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’s a mighty army marching;
Marshalled by the Prince of Peace,
O’er them float love’s shining banners,
Day by day their ranks increase,
They are marching, they are marching,
Lifting up along the way,
Sinful souls, the weak and fallen,
Winning back the steps astray.

They are marching,
They are marching,
In His name they do and dare,
They are telling,
They are telling,
Of His wondrous love they bear.

2 Numberless is this great army,
And its ranks are strong and brave,
And they strive to lead to Jesus,
All the world that He may save.
They are marching, they are marching,
Many are the souls they bring,
Won from sin’s dark paths and pleasures,
Unto Christ their Prince and King. [Refrain]

3 Blessed is this mighty army,
Measureless the good they do,
Toiling for the Heav’nly kingdom,
To their Leader, loyal, true,
They are marching, they are marching,
Onward, upward evermore,
Leading multitudes of saved ones,
To the bright eternal shore. [Refrain]
