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.
1 O Christian, a watchword we bring you today,
As upward the path leads before us;
Our nation for Jesus! we’ll sing on our way,
And trust in the love that is o’er us.
Then toil on, pray, on, never faint or fall,
But join in a constant endeavor
Our land with its millions to Jesus to bring,
To love Him and serve Him forever.
2 No realm ‘neath the skies is more beaut’ous than ours
Or richer in marks of God’s favor;
We’ll bring it with joy and with shoutings of song,
To lay at the feet of our Saviour.
3 But over the land comes a cry of distress
From souls that in darkness are lying,
‘Tis borne to our ears from the field and the street,
The wail of the lost and the dying. [Refrain]
4 We’ll pause not a moment the foe to assail,
But into our ranks quickly falling,
Our nation for Jesus! we sing and prevail,
For Jesus to vict’ry is calling. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day No. 2 #145
