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

Hear the call for your help

Representative Text

1 Hear the call for your help in the noble fight
Being waged ‘gainst the wrong by the ranks of right;
Now enroll ‘neath the banner so fair and bright,
Be true to the temp’rance cause.

Be true to the temp’rance cause,
Be true to the temp’rance cause,
Till the vict’ry shall come in the battle with rum,
Be true to the temp’rance cause.

2 To the helpless and weak be a trusty friend,
Hear their piteous plea and their rights defend;
To o’ercome their strong foe your assistance lend,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]

3 ‘Gainst the power of rum take a fearless stand
And with long faithful workers join heart and hand,
As they seek from its fetters to free our land,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]

4 Till the warfare is done, ever toil and pray;
Tho’ the end of the conflict seem far away,
There is triumph awaiting us some glad day,
Be true to the temp’rance cause. [Refrain]
