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

232. The Shield of Faith

1 Take the shield of faith, my brother,
Hold it boldly in the light;
And its awful, burnished glory
Will put every foe to flight.

Refrain:
In the mighty name of Jesus,
Ever lift up the shield of faith;
Wield the sword of truth, my brother,
Heav’n will crown thy fight of faith.

2 Faith is mighty and will conquer,
Bind it firmly on thy heart;
On the hottest field of battle
Thou shalt quench the vilest dart. [Refrain]

3 And when trouble specters round thee
Come, thy spirit to depress,
Lift the shield of faith abounding,
And thy soul shall calmly rest. [Refrain]

4 Then put on the holy armor,
And defy the tempting throng;
Over all the foes that gather,
Shout and sing the victor’s song. [Refrain]
