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

81. Put On the Armor

1 Put on the armor of our God,
Be strong to do His will;
Dare not go forth for once unarmed,
Thy foes would do thee ill.

Chorus:
Then stand! stand firm, defy the foe!
Thou in the Master’s strength shalt go,
Enduring to the end
Then stand! stand firm, defy the foe,
Enduring to the end.

2 Put on the armor, girt with truth,
The work is not thine own;
Bind to thy heart the law of God,
Fulfilled by Christ alone. [Chorus]

3 Put on the armor; shod with peace
Thy feet shall firm endure;
Tho’ snares beset and thorns shall pierce,
He makes Thy footsteps sure. [Chorus]

4 Put on the armor; take thy shield,
Faith in the risen Lord;
Once pierced with darts still aimed at thee,
He conquers with a word. [Chorus]
