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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 “As the voice of many waters,”
God of Nations, be our praise,
For the patriot sons and daughters
Of our grand, heroic days;
For the fathers, freedom gaining
With their lifeblood as the price;
For the brave, our flag maintaining
At an equal sacrifice.

2 Righteous law and truth upholden—
Free in person, speech and creed—
Free, yet bound by precept golden—
This is liberty indeed.
O, ye bells, from tow’r and steeple,
This “proclaim thro’ all the land;
Ring it out, till ev’ry people
For their rights as freemen stand!

3 Round our heart-stones and Thine altars,
God of Nations, may there be
Loyalty that never falters;
Hearts made strong by trust in Thee!
Strong in union now and ever,
Crowning what our sires began;
Strong to suffer and endeavor
For the equal rights of man!

4 When must sound the bugle’s rally
And the larum of the drum;
When from ev’ry hill and valley
Tramping legions shout—“We come;”
God of Battles, King all glorious,
Then do Thou our country save!
On the land and sea victorious,
Let the Stars and Stripes still wave.
