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 God of our boyhood, whom we yield
The tribute of our youthful praise,
Upon the well-contested field,
And ‘mid the glory of these days,
God of our youth, be with us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget!

2 Sturdy of limb, with bounding health,
Eager to play the hero’s part,
Grant to us each that greater wealth—
An undefiled and loyal heart.
God of our youth, be thou our might,
To do the right, to do the right!

3 When from the field of youthful strife,
Of strength with strength, and speed with speed,
We face the sterner fights of life,—
As still our strength in time of need,
God of our youth, be with us then,
And make us men, and make us men!
