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. Keep the banner flying,
This your cry should be,
Many souls are dying,
Jesus must they see;
Under condemnation,
Life will soon be gone;
Only is salvation
In the Sinless One.

Refrain
Shout, shout the battle cry,
Girt with endeavor;
Lift, lift the banner high,
Now and forever;
Shout, shout the battle cry,
Girt with endeavor;
Lift, lift the banner high,
Now and forever.

2. Keep the banner flying;
When the faithful fall,
Give not up to sighing,
Christ is all in all;
Rally all your forces,
See, the Captain’s near;
Trust to His resources,
There is naught to fear. [Refrain]

3. Keep the banner flying;
Christians should agree,
With each other vying,
Yet in harmony;
Working still for Jesus,
Righting human wrong,
Till the angels greet us
With their welcome song. [Refrain]

4. Keep the banner flying,
Over land and sea;
By yourself denying
Comes the victory;
Brighten toil with singing,
Better days will come;
To the Savior clinging,
You shall rest at home. [Refrain]
