Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

1 Have you seen our badges new?
Pure white ribbons!
Don't you want to wear one too?
Pure white ribbons!
They are emblems of a band
That is working hand in hand,
And for temperance they stand,
Pure white ribbons!

Refrain:
Join the ringing chorus,
Wave them proudly o'er us,
Pure white ribbons, hurrah! hurrah!
Join the ringing chorus,
Wave them proudly o'er us,
Pure white ribbons, hurrah! hurrah!

2 They will drive strong drink away,
Pure white ribbons!
They will surely win the day,
Pure white ribbons!
They will right the wrongs we bear,
Drive out poverty and care,
So we're very proud to wear
Pure white ribbons! [Refrain]

3 They make stalwart men and strong,
Pure white ribbons!
And they help the world along,
Pure white ribbons!
They make sin and suff'ring,
They bring happiness and peace,
Make prosperity increase,
Pure white ribbons! [Refrain]
