Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 O ye who are fighting the forces of wrong,
Take courage, thy banner shall never be furled;
The vict’ry is coming, is coming ere long,
For God watches over the world.

Refrain:
Yes, God watches over the world,
The wrong from its throne shall be hurled;
The vict’ry is coming, is coming ere long,
For God watches over the world.

2 The forces of evil are losing their pow’r,
All lands shall behold thy bright banner unfurled;
Rich blessings are coming in wonderful show’r,
For God watches over the world. [Refrain]

3 Be valiant and loyal, trust God and be strong,
Let doubts and forebodings swift downward be hurled;
The vict’ry is coming, is coming ere long,
For God watches over the world. [Refrain]
