Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

1 O Motherland! whose ample breast
Sustains the down-trod and oppressed
The wide world ‘round,
Thy glories with full voice we sing,
Our homage with true heart we bring,
And love profound.

2 Should foreign foe thy shores invade,
Be strong the arm and keen the blade
In thy defence.
Nor falter till the alien band,
That dares to raise assailing hand,
Be driven hence.

3 And may thy sons and daughters still,
With loyal heart and steadfast will,
The Right maintain;
Keep Justice ever to the fore,
And guard thine Honor evermore
From every stain.

4 Thus, heart to heart and eye to eye,
The Stars and Stripes above us high,
We’ll firmly stand;
And God His blessing down will pour
On all thy homes, from shore to shore,
Dear Motherland!
