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.

Refrain:
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]
