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 Is your hand on the plow? hold on, hold on,
And follow in the good old track;
And remember the word of the Lord who said,
Take heed that ye look not back.

With a firm, steady will, hold on, hold on,
And the end its reward will bring;
For the tried and the true shall receive at last
A crown from the Lord our King.

2 Are you strong in the faith? hold on, hold on,
No matter what the world may do;
Keep your eye on the cross, with a calm, clear gaze,
And know there is light for you. [Refrain]

3 Are you safe in the Ark? hold on, hold on,
Tho' drifting o’er a stormy way;
It will rise, it will rest on the fair green hills
That bloom in eternal day. [Refrain]
