Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

324. Put On the Armor of Our God

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.

Then stand! stand firm! defy the foe!
Thou in the Master's strength shall 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. [Refrain]

3. Put on the armor; shod with peace
Thy feet shall firm endure;
Though snares beset and thorns may pierce,
He makes thy footsteps sure. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
