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.

Underneath the banner

Representative Text

1. Underneath the banner of the Lord our King,
Marching to victory today;
Let us as with happy voices now we sing,
Keep step with Jesus all the way.

Keep step with Jesus all the way,
Let us now his voice obey;
While we march steadily on, till the battle we have won,
Keep step with Jesus all the way.

2. Tho' the way be dreary, let us never fear,
While we are marching to the fray;
Never mind the hardships, let us persevere:
Keep step with Jesus all the way. [Chorus]

3. When the battle rages let us onward press,
Shrink not nor falter in dismay;
Crowns of fadeless glory we shall soon possess;
Keep step with Jesus all the way. [Chorus]
