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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1. Look up and not down, O Christians!
For the Cross points up to the sky,
And our prayers ascend, as our kness we bend
To our God who dwelleth on high.

2. Look out and not in, O Brothers!
For the arms of the Cross stretch wide,
And the Saviour will bind all human-kind,
On the heart that was crucified.

3. Look forward, not back, O Soldiers!
For the light of the Cross has come,
And 'tis God's own hand that giveth the land,
To the armies of Christendom.

4. Lend a hand, lend a hand, O Comrades!
And together the Cross upraise,
For to cheer the sad, and to make hearts glad
Is the fulness of mortal praise.
