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, 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 Press on in the royal way,
The call of the King obey,
Undaunted and true, our strength we renew,
Trusting in the mighty one;
In paths where His glories shine,
We press to the height divine,
His joys we share, His cross we bear.
And follow on.

Onward, onward, to His service true;
Onward, onward, He will ever strength renew;
Forward, forward, till our vict’ry’s won,
His joy we share, His cross we bear,
And follow on.

2 Press on in the royal way,
His love evermore our stay,
His presence shall guide, His glory abide,
Till our crown of life is won;
We count gain of earth as loss,
We trust in the wondrous cross,
We praise His name, His might proclaim,
And follow on. [Refrain]

3 Press on in the royal way,
For joy shall be ours for aye,
The King on His throne shall welcome His own,
When our earthly race is run;
The light of His changeless love
Shall lead to the land above,
We’ll sing His praise, through all our days,
And follow on. [Refrain]
