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

Representative Text

1 Confess the Christ, believing one,
And walk the path He trod;
Behold the laurels He hath won,
Beloved Son of God.
For you He wore the crown of thorn
And drained the cup of woe;
Go bear the cross of earthly scorn
For Him who loved you so.

Confess the Christ, who once was slain,
And hold your colors high;
Confess the Christ who lives again,
And conquer though you die.

2 Proclaim the liberty He gives
To hearts enslaved by sin;
Go tell them your Redeemer lives,
And souls for Jesus win.
The hosts of Satan will be stirred
And tremble at the sight,
AS you unsheathe the living sword,
Or wave the gospel light. [Refrain]

3 The grand reunion will reveal
Your loyalty and love;
And greet you with eternal weal,
In palaces above.
Confess the Christ, victorious one,
And sound His praise abroad;
Go share the laurels He hath won,
Anointed Son of God. [Refrain]
