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 Hail! Stars and Stripes! our Standard, we salute thee;
Emblem of Freedom, Justice, Right and Peace.
Long may thou wave to show the path of Duty;
Guide Reason’s will and bid all discord cease.

2 Hail! fair Columbia! Freemen rise to greet thee!
Star of the West! a Beacon; brightly shine.
Till Time shall end may foeman ne’er defeat thee!
Strong in the Might that maketh Right divine.

3 Hail! blest Republic! May the God of Nations
O’er thee extend His all protecting Hand.
God bless our Flag throughout all generations;
Hail! thou beloved Banner of our Land.
