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.

Representative Text

1 True and loyal to our Lord above,
Trusting wholly in His saving love,
Thus we come before the mercy-seat,
To praise Him with music sweet.

Truehearted and loyal in word and in deed,
Faithful and firm in allegiance to King and to creed,
Steadfast in service and devoted in praise may we be,
O Lord, Jesus, the very foundation of truth in Thee.

2 True and loyal to that King who came,
Full reliance from our hearts to claim,
His the word that thro’ all the time endures,
And pardon for sin assures. [Chorus]

3 True and loyal to our Lord and King,
Let the joyous proclamation ring,
All unworthy claims aside we thrust,
In Him do we put our trust. [Chorus]
