Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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.

357. Let Our Choir New Anthems Raise

1 Let our choir new anthems raise,
wake the morn with gladness;
God himself to joy and praise
turns the martyrs' sadness:
bright the day that won their crown,
opened heav'ns bright portal,
as they laid the mortal down
and put on th'immortal.

2 Never flinched they from the flame,
from the torture never;
vain the foeman's sharpest aim,
Satan's best endeavor;
for by faith they saw the land
decked in all its glory,
where triumphant now they stand
with the victor's story.

3 Faith they had that knew not shame,
love that could not languish;
and eternal hope o'ercame
momentary anguish.
Up and follow, Christian men!
Press through toil and sorrow;
spurn the night of fear and then,
O the glorious morrow!
