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.

1 We march with glad devotion,
Where Jesus leads the way,—
Our cloudless light thro’ darkest night,
Our shelter thro’ the day.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God is our unfailing stay;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God is our unfailing stay.

2 We march—where many dangers,
And mighty foes appear;
Our only sword our Saviour word,
His cross our banner dear.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God, our strength, is ever near;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God, our strength, is ever near.

3 We march—where saintly heroes,
Have won their best renown,
And sword and flame their faith o’ercame,
To gain their martyr’s crown.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God will never fail his own;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God will never fail his own.

4 We march—where the sweet music,
Of angels cheer us on,
Who guard our way by night and day,
Till all our foes are gone.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God has our redemption won;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God has our redemption won.

5 We march—where Jesus calls us
To Zion’s radiant dome;
And soon or late within the gate,
His ransom’d all will come.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God will bring the children home;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God will bring the children home.

6 We march—in hope rejoicing,
The war will soon be done,
And Christ, our King, the world will bring,
To bow before his throne.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God shall reign, and God alone;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God shall reign, and God alone.
