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, 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 Keep straight on, with the eye of faith
Fixed on the prize above;
Striving to keep in the narrow path,
Cheered by a Saviour’s love.

Keep straight on, do not faint or fear,
Jesus will lead the way;
Onward and upward the path shines clear,
Unto the perfect day.

2 Keep straight on, let your light shine clear,
Cheering the lonely way;
Turning the shadows of doubt and fear,
Into the gleam of day. [Refrain]

3 Keep straight on up the shining way,
Leaving the world behind;
Up where the heavenly sunbeams play;
Blessing in Jesus find. [Refrain]

4 Keep straight on through the pearly gates,
Into the city fair;
Up to the throne, where the Saviour waits,
Joyful the welcome there! [Refrain]
