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. Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Casting quickly every weight aside;
While we run the race that’s set before us,
Firm as a rock let our faith abide.

Refrain
Lo, a cloud of witnesses behold us,
They through faith were victors in the race;
Let us gladly follow their example,
Trusting the Savior for strength and grace.

2. Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Pressing forward, we the race will run;
Claiming ever His divine protection,
We shall not fail till the crown is won. [Refrain]

3. Onward, onward, looking unto Jesus,
Joy awaits us on the other shore;
There we’ll sing the song of our redemption,
Safe, safe at last when the strife is o’er. [Refrain]
