Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Hold up the banner of the Lord,
And let it ne’er be taken;
Sound forth the message of His Word
To all of hope forsaken.
Hold up the banner where He leads,
Nor once forget the world’s great needs;
To grander faith awaken.

2. Hold up the cross of Christ the Lord,
Before the lost and dying;
Tell them to look, e’er point them t’ward Him,
Who Himself denying,
Gave His great life from love of us,
And suffered on the cruel cross,
To cure all sin and sighing.

3. Hold up the Word of Christ the Lord,
The Word of consolation;
Glad news of peace—once lost—restored;
Of help in each temptation.
Hence let the light shine far away,
That all who in deep error stray,
From sin may find salvation.

4. Go on, true children of the Lord,
From grace to grace go onward;
God’s host will constant help afford,
Our Captain’s word is forward.
Never to sloth or fear give way,
In work and prayer, each golden day,
Go onward, forward, heav’nward.
