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.

Representative Text

1. Christ, our glorious leader, calls to us today—
Gird the armor on and to the field away!
Slumber then no longer, His command obey,
And forevermore be free.
Refrain
Freedom! freedom! free in Christ, the Lord!
Freedom! freedom! trusting in His Word!
By His grace and in His strength we win,
For His truth and love hath conquered sin!
Freedom! freedom! free in Christ, the Lord!
Freedom! freedom! trusting in His Word!
We His faithful followers will be,
And we shall forevermore be free.

2. Moving bravely onward with His truth unfurled,
See the hosts of sin before us backward hurled;
With our captain we may overcome the world,
And forevermore be free.
Refrain

3. Tho’ the battle rages, strife will soon be past;
Skies will soon be light, which now are overcast;
We the victor’s song of joy may sing at last,
And forevermore be free.
Refrain
