Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Oh, rally round the standard
Of Christ, our royal king;
Oh, rally round His standard,
And hallelujahs sing.

Refrain
For the morning draweth nigh,
For the morning draweth nigh;
We can see it in the distance,
We shall hear it, we shall hear it by and by.

2. Though long and deep the shadows
The dreary night may bring,
Our lamps are trimmed and burning,
Our hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]

3. To yonder golden region
Our faith now plumes her wing;
Our hearts with joy are bounding,
And hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]

4. To Him who paid our ransom,
And took from death the sting,
Be everlasting praises,
Let hallelujahs ring. [Refrain]
