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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

326. Stand by the Cross

1 Stand by the cross when the morning sun
Beams on your way so bright;
Stand by the cross when the shadows fall,
Soon we will triumph for God and right.

Refrain:
Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
Vict’ry will come by and by;
Stand by the cross, soldier, stand,
And we’ll conquer though we die.

2 Stand by the cross till the day is done,
Firm to the end and true;
Trust when the battle is raging wild,
For there is waiting a crown for you. [Refrain]

3 Stand by the cross like a soldier strong,
Fearlessly face the foe;
Soon shall the army of night recede,
Back from the morning’s triumphant glow. [Refrain]

4 Stand by the cross till the Lord returns,
Faithful through life’s last test;
Soon we shall hear from His blessed lips,
“Lay down thy armor and be at rest.” [Refrain]
