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

Full Text

How bright its host appears;
Its ranks are marshalled, ev’ry one,
And filled with volunteers.

Refrain:
There is no place for coward hearts,
Who from their colors fly;
The gospel calls for loyal ones
Who do not fear to die.

2 The trump of war is sounding now,
Its signal well we know;
It bids the soldiers of the cross
Take arms against the foe. [Refrain]

3 The battle storm may do its worst,
Our ardor still shall rise;
We’ll never lay our armor down
Till faith presents the prize. [Refrain]

4 And when by grace our vict’ry won,
Like stars in heaven we shine,
We’ll shout and sing thro’ endless years,
The praise, O Lord, be thine. [Refrain]
