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

134. I've Enlisted in the Service

1 I am fighting in the army of the Lord,
And though dangers thickly round my pathway lie,
I shall never faint or fear, for my Jesus is so near,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die.

Refrain:
I will press the battle on till the victory is won,
And I reach my crown and mansion by and by;
By the grace of God, I know, I shall conquer every foe;
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die.

2 Often do I meet with Satan by the way,
And His fiery darts so thickly round me fly;
When the shield of faith he sees, then he always quickly flees,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]

3 Now the world has ceased to be a friend to me,
And the ones I most have loved now pass me by;
But to Him I’ll faithful be who has shed His blood for me,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]

4 I shall never tire or give the battle o’er,
For the crowning day is coming by and by;
Then through all eternity I shall shout the victory,
I’ve enlisted in the service till I die. [Refrain]
