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 Our country for Jesus,
The land of the free,
From ocean to ocean,
From mountain to sea;
The Lord is our Captain,
His word is out guide;
We’re only to follow,
Whate’er may betide.

Keep the banner unfurled,
And the vict’ry loud sing,
Thus to conquer the world
For Jesus, our King.

2 Our country for Jesus,
The light of the world;
Our triumph is certain,
With banner unfurled;
For truth is victorious
O’er error and race;
While love sings melodious
The song of the free. [Refrain]

3 The children are calling,
Are calling for light,
While thousands are praying
And toiling with might.
Then let us be faithful,
The harvest is white;
The Bridegroom is coming,
Our lamps should be bright. [Refrain]
