Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

395. O Faithless, Fearful Army

1 O faithless, fearful army,
for you the Lord doth fight;
for you, through oceans stormy,
he cleaves his path of light.
Determined is the issue,
the crucial vict'ry past;
and God, who has redeemed you,
upholds you to the last.

2 Why downcast, why despairing,
in face of hostile power,
as though alone you're bearing
the stresses of this hour?
To death and hell appointed,
see conqu'ring in your place
the Son of God, th'Anointed,
elect by sov'reign grace!

3 His death and resurrection
he clothes upon his folk,
bound to him in subjection
by faith and love and hope.
O warrior true and glorious,
thou hast God's battle won!
Lord Christ, for us victorious,
thy perfect work is done.
