Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

Full 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.

Refrain:
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]
