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, sing as you go, ‘tis better, you know,
To sing and be glad all the day;
The journey is long, march on with a song;
Your music will brighten the way.

Oh, sin, joyfully sing,
Your music will brighten the way;
Oh, sing, joyfully sing,
Oh, sing and be glad all the day.

2 Oh, sing with your might, for better you’ll fight
The battle with Satan and wrong;
Yes, sing of His pow’r each day and each hour.
And Satan will flee at the song. [Refrain]

3 Oh, sing of His Word, for never was heard
A measure so true or so sweet,
And sinners will hear the message of cheer,
While angels the song will repeat. [Refrain]

4 Oh, joyfully sing, the echoes will ring
Adown the long vista of time,
Till millions shall raise an anthem of praise,
And echo the silvery chime. [Refrain]
