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

Saul's Armor

Hymnal: Divine Hymns or Spiritual Songs, for the use of religious assemblies and private Christians #AXIII (1802) Hymnal Title: Divine Hymns or Spiritual Songs, for the use of religious assemblies and private Christians First Line: When first my soul enlisted Lyrics: 1 When first my soul enlisted, My Savior's foes to fight; Mistaken friends insisted, I was not arm'd aright, So Saul advised David, He certainly would fail; Nor could his life be saved, Without a coat of Mail. 2 But David tho' he yielded, To put the armor on' Soon found he could not wield it, And ventur'd forth with none, With only sling and pebble, He fought the fight of faith; The weapon seem'd but feeble, Yet prov'd Goliah's death. 3 Had I by him been guided, And quickly thrown away The armor men provided, I might have gain'd the day, But arm'd as they advis'd me, My expectations fail'd, The enemy surpris'd me, And had almost prevail'd. 4 Furnish'd with books and notions, and arguments and pride, I practis'd all my motions And Satan's pow'r defi'd: But soon perceiv'd with trouble, That these would do no good, Iron to them is stubble, And brass like rotten wood. 5 I triumph'd at a distance, While he was out of sight; But faint was my resistance, When forc'd to join in fight, He broke my sword in shivers, And pierc'd my boasted shield, Laugh'd at my vain endeavors, And drove me from the field. 6 Satan will not be braved By such a worm as I: Then let me learn with David, To trust in the Most High; To plead the name of jesus, And use the sling of pray'r; Thus arm'd when Satan sees us, He'll tremble, and despair.
