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 Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
Pledge of victory.
We will gladly, sweetly sing,
As we follow Christ our King,
Gladsome off’rings to him bring;
Hallelujah!

Refrain:
Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
The pledge of victory,
Wave the royal banner!
Raise the standard high!
‘Tis the sign of triumph,
The pledge of victory.

2 He for our redemption
Came to earth and died,
He is gone before us
As our Friend and Guide.
Now is past the pain and shame,
But his love is still the same,
Praise ye then his glorious name;
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 Let us ever onward;
Never let us fear,—
Lift the standard higher
Victory is near.
We will gladly, sweetly sing,
AS we follow Christ our King,
Gladsome off’rings to him bring;
Hallelujah! [Refrain]
