Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
