Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
Hear him saying, “follow me;”
In the noble Christian army
Faithful soldiers let us be.

Marching on with singing,
Sweetest music bringing
Unto him that shall reign;
Let the world before us
Hear the joyful chorus,
Hallelujah, amen.

2 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
In the early morning bright,
With the watchword on our banner,
Brave defenders of the right. [Refrain]

3 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
Through the conflict firmly stand;
For we cannot lose a battle
With our leader in command. [Refrain]

4 Up for Jesus! up and onward!
He will guide us with his eye;
He has promised if we trust him,
We shall conquer by and by. [Refrain]
