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.
Harry Plantinga

7720. What We Stand For

1. For the Christ of Galilee,
For the truth which makes men free,
For the bond of unity
Which makes God’s children one.

For these, for these we’ll firmly stand,
’Gainst sin and doubt and wrong,
Till every voice in every land,
Shall join our triumph song.

2. For the love which shines in deeds,
For the life which this world needs,
For the church whose triumph speeds
The prayer, Thy will be done. [Refrain]

3. For the right against the wrong,
For the weak against the strong,
For the poor who’ve waited long
For the brighter age to be. [Refrain]

4. For the faith against tradition,
For the truth ’gainst superstition,
For the hope, whose glad fruition
Our waiting eyes shall see. [Refrain]

5. For the city God is rearing,
For the new earth now appearing,
For the heaven above us clearing
And the song of victory. [Refrain]
