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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Falter not, falter not in the battle for the Lord,
Carry on, carry on!
Strength to fight for the right He has promised in His word.
Carry on, carry on!

Refrain:
Carry on, carry on!
For the right win the day,
Ere the time for vict’ry shall be gone,
Carry on, carry on, carry on!

2 Do not stay on the way, there are battles to be won,
Carry on, carry on!
Hasten on, ever on, for the day will soon be done,
Carry on, carry on! [Refrain]

3 Those who fall send a call to the brave who still remain,
Carry on, carry on!
In the work of the Lord we shall labor not in vain,
Carry on, carry on! [Refrain]
