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

6841. To Arms! To Arms! Ye Soldiers!

1. To arms! To arms! ye soldiers,
The trumpet call obey!
Arise from dreary slumbers
To watch, and fight, and pray.

Refrain
To arms! to arms! ye soldiers,
The trumpet call obey!
With Jesus as our Leader,
We’re sure to win the day.

2. ’Tis not to rest, or banquet,
Or proud parade we go;
The fight of faith is fiercer,
Than worldly warriors know. [Refrain]

3. Against the powers of darkness
With fearful craft and rage,
Our heavenly Captain calls us
Incessant war to wage. [Refrain]

4. We’ll bless Thee for the battle,
We’ll glory in the strife;
We’ll shout at call of trumpet,
We’ll win eternal life.[Refrain]
