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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Show the world just where you stand

Representative Text

1 Do not be ashamed to own Him,
Or obey your Lord’s command;
In your every word and action
Show the world just where you stand.

Show the world just where you stand,
Gladly follow His command;
Your all resign to Christ divine,
Show the world just where you stand.

2 When temptations throng around you,
Closer hold His nail pierced hand;
You have joined His blessèd service,
Show the world just where you stand. [Refrain]

3 Do not be ashamed to own Him,
Tell it out thro’ all the land;
Loyal ever to the Master,
Show the world just where you stand. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
