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

9971. Lift The Gospel Banner

1 Lift the Gospel banner, wave it far and wide,
Through the crowded city, over ocean’s tide:
Sound the proclamation, peace to all mankind,
Jesus and salvation all the world may find;
Sound the proclamation, peace to all mankind,
Jesus and salvation all the world may find.

2 Lift the Gospel standard, spread the Gospel light,
Let the blessèd radiance flame o’er heathen night;
Love is God’s own sunshine, such as angels prove:
Conquer men by kindness, God Himself is love;
Love is God’s own sunshine, such as angels prove:
Conquer men by kindness, God Himself is love.

3 Let us rise to action, work with one design,
Work with Christ, and triumph in the work divine;
Victory’s palm awaits us, let us then work on
Till we hear the welcome, "Faithful ones, well done!"
Victory’s palm awaits us, let us then work on
Till we hear the welcome, "Faithful ones, well done!"
