We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
