We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Comrade with comrade united,
Held by one bond of love,
All to one cause we are plighted,
Christ, and his kingdom above.

Shoulder to shoulder, heart’s growing stronger and bolder,
Marching together, one in communion and sweet accord;
Shoulder to shoulder, youth with the wiser and older,
Comrades in hope and in faith, comrades in service for Christ our Lord.

2 Clasping the hand of a neighbor,
Meeting a friendly smile,
Lighten the hardest of labor,
Shorten the weariest mile. [Refrain]

3 Only one banner waves o’er us,
Only one sign we know;
So with that standard before us,
Onward and upward we go. [Refrain]
