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 Will you join our ranks that are marching on
‘Neath the banner of our God?
Will you seek the land where the Lord has gone?
Will you walk in the path He trod?

Refrain:
Will you join our ranks?
Will you join our ranks?
Will you cast the world, the world away?
Will you have the joy nothing can destroy?
Will you join our ranks today?

2 Will you join our ranks of the saved today?
Will you make the Lord your choice?
Will you have the peace none can take away,
And in His blessed love rejoice? [Refrain]

3 Will you join our ranks of the white-robed throng,
Where the Savior reigns as King?
Will the glad “new song” unto you belong,
Will you with His dear angels sing? [Refrain]
