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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
