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.

1 Christian, be true to Christ who died to save you,
True to the holy name you bear;
Be what your Lord each moment here would have you,
Keeping your garments always pure and fair.

Refrain:
Be true ev’ry moment, O Christian,
O be true, where your duty shall call you,
For no evil shall ever befall you,
If you are true to your Saviour each day.

2 Christian, be true to friends of earth who love you,
True to your faith in God’s own word;
True to your hope of glory grand above you,
True to the vows you made the church of God. [Refrain]

3 Christian, be true, this is the path of blessing,
Jesus was true to man and God;
If you are true, you Master’s name confessing,
You shall receive the faithful one’s reward. [Refrain]
