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

Church of God, whose conquering banners

Representative Text

1 Church of God, whose conquering banners,
Float along the glorious years,
Gath'ring harvest rich and golden,
Sown in poverty and tears,
Onward press, the cross is bending
Far toward the morning skies,
Speedy dawn of light portending:
Church of God awake! arise!

Church of God, awake! arise!
Christ, your Head and Master, cries,
Send the gospel's joyful sound
Unto earth's remotest bound.

2 In your costly temples praying,
"Let thy kingdom come, we pray."
Are but words of idle meaning
If with these we turn away.
Boundless wealth to you is given
From His hand who owns it all,
And His eye beholds in heaven
What ye render back for all. [Refrain]

3 Shake the earth and rend the heaven,
Wake thy sleeping children, Lord,
Till the measure full and even
Has been rendered at Thy word.
Then from out her chrism of sorrow
Shall the earth redeemed arise,
And the fair eternal morrow
Dawn with opal tinted skies. [Refrain]
