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.

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

Chorus:
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 our forces,
See, the Captain's near;
Trust to his resources,
There is naught to fear. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

4 Keep the banner flying,
Over land and sea;
By our self-denying
Comes the victory;
Brighten toil with singing,
Better days will come;
To the Saviour clinging,
We shall rest at home. [Chorus]
