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 We must work and pray together,
Working, praying for the right;
We must fight against the evil,
Till we conquer by our might.

We’re strong to do, we’re strong to dare,
In faith and hope we’re strong;
United thus in strength and prayer,
We’ll help the cause along.

2 In defense of truth and justice,
Like a bulwark we must stand;
And the soul that’s full of courage
Will give courage to the hand. [Refrain]

3 We must work and not be weary,
Though we conquer not today;
For the rescue of our brothers,
We must work as well as pray. [Refrain]

4 Hark! the crystal streams and fountains
Swell the chorus of our song;
And they seem to be rejoicing
As they help the cause along. [Refrain]
