Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.

and gird the gospel armor on;

your Jesus nailed them to the cross,
and sang the triumph when he rose.

3 Then let my soul march boldly on,
press forward to the heav'nly gate;

and glitt'ring robes for conqu'rors wait.

4 There shall I wear a starry crown,
and triumph in almighty grace;
while all the armies of the skies
join in my glorious Leader's praise.
