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.

1. O Jesus, Prince of life and truth,
Beneath Thy banner bright,
We dedicate our strength and youth
To battle for the right.
We give our lives with glad intent
To serve the world and Thee,
To die, to suffer and be spent
To set our brothers free.

2. In serried ranks, with fearless tread,
O Captain of us all,
Thy glory on our banners shed,
We answer to Thy call;
And where the fiercest battles press
Against the hosts of sin,
To rescue those in dire distress
We gladly enter in.

3. O Jesus, once a Nazareth boy,
And tempted like as we,
All inward foes help us destroy,
And spotless all to be.
We trust Thee for the grace to win
The high, victorious goal,
Where purity shall conquer sin
In Christ-like self control.
