Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

We've heard the call to rally

Full Text

1 We’ve heard the call to rally, and we hasten to obey;
When Jesus needs our service, we will heed without delay;
Redeemed with His own precious blood on rugged Calvary,
We yield our all to Him.

"Rally!" is our watchword, "Rally" is our song!
All our time and all our power to Christ belong!
Rally, then with gladness, rally with a cheer,
We shall win the battle, for our captain’s near!

2 We’ll gather ’round His banner, glorious emblem of the right,
The symbol of His truth and love, agleam with holy light;
We’ll challenge ev’ryevil, we will battle in His might,
And victory shall be ours. [Refrain]

3 We’ll help to save the fallen from the snares of doubt and sin,
We’ll teach the youth to spurn the wrong and choose the pure and clean;
We’ll go in Jesus’ precious name and bring the world to Him,
And crown Him Lord for aye. [Refrain]
