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

342. Oh, Christians leagued together

1 Oh, Christians leagued together,
To battle for the right,
Arise, and don your armor,
Put the foe to flight;
We’ve given our allegiance,
To serve without surcease,
The mighty Lord of armies
And gentle Prince of Peace.
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.

2 Then onward be the war cry,
And onward still, so long
As we have self to conquer,
Souls to cheer with song:
Let sound the martial music,
Ring out the bugle call,
To rally for the conflict
Our people one and all!
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.

3 We proudly bear as banner
A cross within the heart,
To show that we have chosen
Christ, the better part.
Then joy, and peace, and comfort
Shall blossom as a rose,
Until our earthly blessings
The worth of heav'n disclose.
All hail, our royal colors,
For kingly lives unfold,
Beneath our Luther ensign,
Black, red, white, blue and gold.
