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.

10854. The Shield Of Faith

1 Take the shield of faith, my brother,
Hold it boldly in the light;
And its awful burnished glory
Will put every foe to flight.

In the mighty name of Jesus,
Ever lift up the shield of faith;
Wield the sword of truth, my brother,
Heaven will crown thy fight of faith.

2 Faith is mighty and will conquer,
Bind it firmly on thy heart;
On the hottest field of batle,
Thou wilt quench the vilest dart. [Refrain]

3 And when trouble specters round thee,
Come, thy spirit to depress,
Lift the shield of faith abounding,
And thy soul shall calmly rest. [Refrain]

4 Then put on the holy armor,
And defy the tempting throng,
Over all the foes that gather,
Shout and sing the victor’s song. [Refrain]
