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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Strong of body, high of spirit

Representative Text

1. Strong of body, high of spirit,
Valiant youth goes striding forth;
His the seasons that inherit
All the treasure trove of earth.
Sky and sunlight, dream and labor,
Mountain crag and sparkling shore,
Love of God and love of neighbor,
These are his forevermore.

2. Lord who liveth, youth undying,
Thou who knowest this our path,
Move among us, still defying
Nights of fear and gulfs of wrath.
Though our years are far and ranging,
We are young who walk with truth,
Hearts at peace that know no changing,
These are thine, immortal youth.
