We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 We are the sons of Wesley,
We are the sons of God;
We'll stand by our Discipline,
And by God's holy Word.

Chorus:
I want to be a soldier,
The lord hath se tme free.
I want to be a soldier,
Fighting for liberty.

2 God bless our Church and bishop,
And the local brethren too.
God bless our Church and people,
With all the traveling crew. [Chorus]

3 We Methodists get happy—
The Lord hath set us free.
We'll shout and give him glory,
To all eternity. [Chorus]

4 We'll unfold the Gospel banner,
Wherever we do go,
And spread our free communion
While journeying below. [Chorus]

5 I saw a mighty army,
Which went along before;
So great no man could number,
Through blood and tears no more. [Chorus]

6 Go preach ye sons of thunder,
Ye daughters of the Lamb,
For Jesus will be with you
Until the world shall end.

7 God bless us in the East,
As well as in the West,
Protect us in the North,
Stand by us in the South. [Chorus]

8 We've fought the mighty battle,
With the rebellious crew;
Do n't you see how many dangers
The Lord has brought us through? [Chorus]
