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 Tho’ mighty hosts of sin assail,
Appalling to the sight,
We’ll onward go, for this we know—
We’re fighting for the right.

We’re fighting, fighting, fighting for the right,
The foe must all take, the foe must all take flight,
We’ll onward go, for this we know,
We’re fighting, fighting, fighting for the right.

2 Tho’ fierce and long the battle’s tide,
‘Twill not our souls affright;
Jehovah’s pow’r is on our side—
We’re fighting for the right. [Refrain]

3 With one accord, then onward, all!
The vict’ry lies in sight;
The mighty foe must surely fall—
We’re fighting for the right. [Refrain]
