We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
