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 Lift His banner on the highest mountain,
Sunlight gleaming on its folds so fair,
Shout His praises, swell the song of gladness,
Rally! rally! while His cross we bear.

Wave His banner, lift the blessed standard high,
Praise the Lord of earth and sky,
Praise the Lord of earth and sky,
Shout His praises, Christ forever! be our cry,
Christ forever be our rallying cry.

2 Hear Him calling from the heights of glory,
Who will follow on to victory?
King Eternal, all Thy love proclaiming,
We will faithful to Thy service be. [Refrain]

3 Come, exultant, swell the hallelujahs,
Joy shall ring through all the earth and sky,
On for Jesus! join the glorious Leader,
“Christ forever!” wave His standard high. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
