Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

A Happy Band

Representative Text

1. There is a happy band on earth today,
Who now for Jesus stand, true ev'ry way;
Soon they his face shall see,
Live thro' all eternity,
From earth and sorrow free, where all is love.

2. While here this happy band works ev'ry day,
Led by the Savior's hand, safe all the way;
Kept by his mighty pow'r,
Sav'd from sin each day and hour,
Where blessings ever show'r from heav'n above.

3. Bright in God's chosen band beams ev'ry eye,
Kept by almighty pow'r, love can not die;
We now in glory run,
Holding forth God's only Son,
For he the work hath done. Praise him today!

4. God's true and spotless church is one today,
With Christ the living head, and only way;
God's saints array'd in white,
Spreading truth in evening light,
With Satan's hosts to fight, then watch and pray.
