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

Representative Text

1 Hear the temp'rance call,
Freemen one and all,
Hear your country's earnest cry;
See your native land
Life her beck'ning hand;
Sons of freedom, come ye nigh.

Starve the monster from our shore,
Let his cruel reign be o'er;
Starve the monster from our shore,
Let his cruel reign be o'er.

2 Leave the shop and farm,
Leave your bright hearths warm;
Work and pray the lost to save;
Let your leaders be
True and noble, free,
Fearless, temp'rate, good, and grave. [Chorus]

3 Hail! our Fatherland,
Here thy children stand,
All resolv'd, united, true;
In the temp'rance cause
Ne'er to faint or pause!
This our purpose is, and vow. [Chorus]
