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.

Representative Text

1 We’re an army marching in the cause of right,
Hear our songs resounding as we go;—
See our weapons shining in the bright sunlight,
Ever trim and ready for the foe.

Marching, marching,
Strong in our Captain true;
Bearing the colors of our King,
Onward we’re marching as we sing;
Marching, Marching,
Ready to dare and do;
Forth at the call, then rally all,
We march in the cause of right.

2 Hear the bugles sounding as we fall in line,
Ready for our duty t’ward our King,—
Going forth to battle at his call divine,
As his praises loud and long we sing. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ our forces weaken, we will not retreat,
Strong and mighty soldiers, true are we;
Tho’ the foe be strong whom we in battle meet;
Yet from fear we ever will be free. [Refrain]
