Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 up the gospel banner upon the mountains high,
Proclaim the Saviour’s glory which fills the earth and sky;
Go spread the joyful tidings through all the world around,
And tell to dying sinners, the way of life is found.

Refrain:
Lift up the blessed gospel banner
Upon the plains and mountains high,
Proclaim the Saviour’s grace and glory,
And sing His praise through earth and sky,
Lift up the blessed gospel banner,
From sea to sea and shore to shore,
Till ev’ry nation, By His salvation,
Be saved forevermore.

2 Lift up the gospel banner, let ev’ry sinner see
The path of woe and danger, that from it he may flee,
That all may seek their refuge in Christ the sinners’ friend,
Who only can uphold them and keep them to the end. [Refrain]

3 Lift up the gospel banner upon the mountains high,
Till o’er the earth its glory is seen through ev’ry eye;
For Christ shall reign triumphant, and all His foes shall fall,
But unto those that love Him will He be all in all. [Refrain]
