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

Stand by the school

Let us work for the school with our hearts

Author: A. A. Graley
Tune: [Let us work for the school with our hearts]
Published in 12 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let us work for the school with our hearts and our hands;
For its praises are sung by the good in all lands
Let it never, no never, decline;
That are blest with the gospel divine.
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?

2 'Tis perfum'd by the pray'rs, 'tis bedewed by the tears
They rejoiced at its hopes, and they mourned at its fears,
Of the holy, the active, the true;
When its friends were but feeble and few.
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?

3 Now the sunshine of favor illumines its path
'Tis a source of her weal, 'tis a source of her worth,
And the church spreads above it her wing;
And a gem in the crown of her King.
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?
Rally then, rally then, stand by the school;
Why should it languish and die?
