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

Representative Text

1 True to the motto of Christian Endeavor,
Working for Christ and the Church day by day;
Come, join a fellowship nothing can sever,
Follow our captain as He leads the way.

Christian Endeavor,
Christian Endeavor,
Join in the chorus we joyfully sing;
Christian Endeavor,
Christian Endeavor,
Winning the world for Jesus, our King.

2 Saved by the pow’r of the King who has bought us,
Let us go forward obeying His call;
Showing to others the joy He has brought us,
Telling the story “God’s love is for all.” [Refrain]

3 Powers of wickedness, striving forever
Body and soul by your wiles to destroy,
Hear ye the challenge of Christian Endeavor
“Christ is the victor, His name we employ!” [Refrain]
