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

Representative Text

1 For Christ is our endeavor,
Our hearts to Him belong;
His presence cheers us ever,
His love inspires our song;
We come in youth's bright morning,
Obedient to His word,
And seek for our adorning,
The beauty of the Lord.

2 In fulness of His blessing,
Good work for Him we'll do;
His name with joy confessing,
His standard bearers true;
And He will never fail us,
Whatever may betide;
Tho' danger should assail us,
In Him we safe abide.

3 So with youth's ardor showing,
We form a Christian band;
The mind of Jesus knowing,
We for His honor stand;
For He is our Endeavor,
And to Him we belong,
Whose grace shall fail us never,
Whose love inspires our song.
