Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 With our colors waving bright in the blaze of gospel light
We are marshall’d on the world’s great field;
We are ready for the strife and the battle work of life,
Ever trusting in the Lord our shield.

Refrain:
Glory to God! we are marching, marching on,
Marching to a home above;
Glory to God! we are marching, marching on,
Happy in a Saviour’s love.

2 Oft the tempter we shall meet, but we will not fear defeat,
Though his arrows at our ranks may fly;
Thro’ a Saviour’s mighty love more than conquerors we shall prove,
Shouting, Glory be to God on high. [Refrain]

3 We have girded on the sword and the armor of the Lord,
We have taken up the cross he bore;
Oh, the trophies we shall win, oh, the victory over sin,
When the battle and the strife are o’er! [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll reach the pearly gate, where the blessed army wait,
Soon their welcome, welcome song may ring;
When we lay our armor down and receive a starry crown,
Shouting, Glory be to God our King. [Refrain]
