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 Press onward, press onward, and trusting the Lord,
Remember the promise proclaim'd in His word;
He guideth the foot-steps, directeth the way
Of all who confess Him, believe, and obey.

Chorus:
Believe and obey, believe and obey;
The Master is calling, no longer delay:
The light of His mercy shines bright on the way
Of all who confess Him, believe, and obey.

2 Press onward, press onward, if you would secure
The rest of the faithful, abiding and sure;
The gift of salvation is offer'd today
To all who confess Him, believe, and obey. [Chorus]

3 Press onward, press onward, your courage renew;
The prize is before you, the crown is in view,
His love is so boundless, He'll never say nay,
To those who confess Him, believe, and obey. [Chorus]
