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 Draw the line of battle,
Press upon the foe,
Wave the flag of vict’ry,
Ev’rywhere you go,
Break the ranks of Satan,
Scatter all his host,
Give no time to rally,
Or the battle’s lost.

Fall into line, my brother, fall into line,
The conquest is great and needs your help,
Draw the line of battle, courage ev’ry heart,
And ours will be the victo’ry by and by.

2 Draw the line of battle,
Ready for the fight,
Jesus gives the orders,
Stand up in his might;
Courage! do not falter,
Bold, heroic stand,
Hear the voice of Jesus,
Forward his command. [Refrain]

3 Draw the line of battle,
Victory is near,
Cheer up! weary soldier,
Never, never fear;
Jesus is a present
Help in time of need,
He will in the battle
On to conquest lead. [Refrain]
