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.

Representative Text

1 Hold up His standard, loyal and true,
Fond eyes are ever looking on you.
Praying our Savior that you may be,
O’er wrong triumphant brave, strong and free.

Hold up the standard, let it wave;
Hold up the standard, soldiers brave;
Forward to battle, let the watchword ring,
Hold up the standard of the King.

2 Hold up His standard, true to your King,
Whate’er of conflict each day may bring;
Lower it never, great though the cost,
Lest some who trust you, by this be lost. [Refrain]

3 Hold up His standard, never alone
Liveth or dieth lowliest one;
Some weaker brother, leaning on you,
Will be for heav’n won, if you are true. [Refrain]
