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

Glorious country, we love thee

Representative Text

1 Glorious country, we love thee, we hail thee;
Land where our fathers with purpose sublime
Laid the foundation, which never shall fail thee,
Firm as the rock and abiding as time.

Sing of our country; O sing of it ever!
Join in the chorus exultant and free:
“Union and liberty, now and forever!”
This shall the song of America be.

2 Glorious people; the blood of the nations
Mingles and makes of us brothers and friends,
Binds us together in closest relations,
Quickens the song which triumphant ascends. [Refrain]

3 Glorious banner, an emblem right royal,
Snatched from the depths of the starry blue sky;
Stained with the blood of our patriots loyal;
Thee did they follow to conquer or die. [Refrain]

4 Let us be loyal, O people most glorious!
True to our colors wherever unfurled;
Freedom our watchword, our country victorious;
Light of the nations, the hope of the world. [Refrain]
