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 While trav’ling down life’s pathway,
With sin on every hand,
We’re called to loyal service,
To lend a helping hand;
And looking unto Jesus,
Though dark and lone the way—
He says, “Be not discouraged,
I’m with thee all the way.”

Put your shoulder to the wheel in this world of sin;
Put your shoulder to the wheel, help the world to win;
Put your shoulder to the wheel till the battle’s done,
And the vict’ry shall be won.

2 O loyal Christian soldier,
Go fight the hosts of sin,
Determined not to falter
Till ye the vict’ry win;
Go buckle on the armor
Of pray’r and faith and love,
And marching on triumphant,
You’ll reign with Him above. [Refrain]

3 And when our labors ended,
All weary with the fight,
We’ll see our Savior standing,
All clothed in glory bright;
And hear His joyous welcome,
“O weary wand’rer, come!” [Refrain]
And then we’ll sing forever,
With Him around the throne. [Refrain]
