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.

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]
