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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

101. We'll End this Warfare

We'll end this warfare,
Down by the river;
We'll end this warfare,
Down by the river side.

1 Hark! listen to the trumpeters,
Down by the river;
They call for valiant volunteers,
Down by the river side.

2 See Gideon marching out to fight;
He had no weapon but a light.

3 He took his pitcher and a lamp,
And stormed with ease the Midean camp.

4 This war is all my soul's delight:
I love the thickest of the fight.

5 The hottest fight is just begun;
And who will stand and never run.

6 We want no cowards in our band;
We call for full-salvation men.

7 This day my soul has caught new fire;
I feel that heaven is drawing nigher.

8 Farewell, vain world, I'm going home;
My Saviour smiles and bids me come.
