Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Oh, God of our country,
Oh, Lord of the free,
We ask for Thy blessing
On low bended knee,
That all of our people
On land or on sea
May pledge their allegiance
And faith unto Thee,
May pledge their allegiance
And faith unto Thee.

2 Oh, grant to us wisdom
Each day of the year,
The foes of Thy kingdom
Are drawing anear;
Oh, give to our leaders
A vision so clear
That shouts of Thy triumph
All nations shall hear,
That shouts of Thy triumph
All nations shall hear.

3 Oh, God! great Jehovah
Our Maker, our King!
We ask the protecting
Of Thy mighty wing—
And all o’er our country
Thy vict’ry will ring,
And all hearts in gladness
Thy praises shall sing,
And all hearts in gladness
Thy praises shall sing.
