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 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a burden to bear, there’s a grief to share;
There’s a heart that breaks ’neath a load of care—
But fare ye forth with a song,
But fare ye forth with a song.

2 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a battle to fight, there’s a wrong to right;
There’s a God who blesses the good with might—
So fare ye forth with a song,
So fare ye forth with a song.

3 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a work to do, there’s a world to make new;
There’s a call for men who are brave and true—
Speed on! speed on with a song,
Speed on! speed on with a song.

4 Quit you like men, be strong, be strong;
There’s a year of grace, there’s a God to face,
There’s another heat in the great world race—
Speed on! speed on with a song,
Speed on! speed on with a song.
