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

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.
