We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Rally for the Royal Master

Rally for the Master

Representative Text

1 Rally for the Master,
Soldiers brave and true,
Keep his blood-stain'd banner
Ever in full view;
In the Christian warfare
Take a valiant stand,
In this work for Jesus,
Come, and lend a hand.

Rally, rally,
Comrades, true and faithful,
Rally, rally,
For the blessed King;
Soldiers of "Endeavor,"
We are his forever,
Let us falter never,
Rally for our King.

2 Rally for the Master,
Give the countersign,
Shout aloud the watchword,
Pass it down the line!
Christ, our Lord, and Saviour,
And the Church he bought,
Claim our glad allegiance,
Love, and time, and thought. [Chorus]

3 Rally for the Master,
For the cause we love;
Crown his name with blessing,
Name all names above!
By his word and Spirit
Conquer in the fight,
Take the world for Jesus,
Glory to his might! [Chorus]
