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.

1 Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
Oh! we are going to wear a crown,
To wear a starry crown.

Refrain:
Away over Jordan,
With our blessed Jesus
Away over Jordan,
To wear a starry crown.

2 You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
You must be sav'd to wear a crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

3 You must be cleans'd to wear that crown.
You must be cleans'd to wear that crown.
You must be cleans'd to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

4 You must live upright to wear that crown.
You must live upright to wear that crown.
You must live upright to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

5 You must fight the fight to wear that crown.
You must fight the fight to wear that crown.
You must fight the fight to wear that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]

6 You must bear the cross to win that crown.
You must bear the cross to win that crown.
You must bear the cross to win that crown,
To wear a starry crown. [Refrain]
