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,
Harry Plantinga

1 From over hill and plain
There comes the signal strain,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Its music rolls along,
The hills take up the song,
Of loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ.

Chorus:
“On to victory! On to victory!”
Cries our great Commander “On!”
We’ll move at His command,
We’ll soon possess the land,
Thro' loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ.

2 O hear, ye brave, the sound
That moves the earth around,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Arise to dare and do,
Ring out the watchword true,
Of loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ. (Chorus)

3 Come, join our loyal throng,
We’ll rout the giant wrong,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Where Satan’s banners float
We’ll send the bugle note,
Of loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ. (Chorus)

4 The strength of youth we lay
At Jesus’ feet today,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
His Gospel we’ll proclaim,
Throughout the world’s domain,
Of loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ. (Chorus)
