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

Representative Text

1 We’re gathered in the name of Christ,
To help, with pray’r and song,
To lead some wand’ring one to Him,
From paths of sin and wrong;
To lend, in love, new strength to him,
Who needs a helping hand;
“Not living dreams, but doing things”
We’re marching thro’ the land.

We are a Christian multitude,
We’re banded in His name,
To fight the hosts of sin and wrong,
And victory we claim!
He gives us courage, strength and zeal,
And leads us day by day,
Our song of joy, our battle cry—
“Jesus leads the way!”

2 To Christ the glory doth belong!
Had it not been for Him,
We might have groped our way about
In darkness and in sin;
But when we knew His saving grace,
Accepted Him as ours,
His love came pouring in our hearts,
To shine in darkest hours. [Refrain]

3 And now we’ve promised faithfully,
While here on earth we stay,
To help the struggling wanderer,
To tread the narrow way;
We love to do the work of Christ,
With mind, and heart, and time;
‘Twill make our toil on earth a joy,
And life in heav’n sublime. [Refrain]
