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 shout from a host with banners;
How they gleam as they wave in the light!
‘Tis the host of the Lord, at his royal word
Going forth, in his armor bright.

Sounding the war-cry, shouting, hosanna!
On where the conflict is wildest;
Marching boldly they go, dealing death to the foe,
In the strength of the Lord their shield.

2 There’s a shout from a host with banners,
And it breaks like a flood on the soul,
And the eyes of the deep it shall wake from sleep,
And the nations from pole to pole. [Refrain]

3 There’s a shout from a host with banners,—
How their numbers increase as they more
To the gates of the blest, and the vales of rest,
In the beautiful home above. [Refrain]

4 There’s a shout from a host with banners;
But their rapture, oh, what will it be
When the battle is done, when their crowns are won,
And the King on his throne they see. [Refrain]
