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.

Representative Text

1 Soldier, is the battle long?
Keep on praying;
Right will surely conquer wrong,
Keep on praying.
Do no heed the cannon’s roar,
War shall cease and be no more,
And our Captain’s on before,
Keep on praying.

Keep on praying,
Keep on praying;
You will conquer by and by,
Keep on praying.

2 Pilgrim, have you weary grown?
Keep on praying;
Christ won’t leave you all alone,
Keep on praying.
God will hear your eager pray’r,
Soon a starry crown you’ll wear,
And the joys of heav’n you’ll share,
Keep on praying. [Refrain]

3 Christian has your faith grown weak?
Keep on praying;
Do the tears roll down your cheek?
Keep on praying.
Soon you never more will sigh,
Tears no more will dim your eye,
You will conquer by and by,
Keep on praying. [Refrain]

4 O the joys we’ll soon receive,
Keep on praying;
If in Christ our hearts believe,
Keep on praying.
If to Jesus we belong,
Soon we’ll join the ransom’d throng,
And we’ll sing redemption’s song,
Keep on praying. [Refrain]
