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 Gird on the royal armor,
Go forth in Jesus' name;
To those who sit in darkness
The Light of Life proclaim.

Chorus:
Gird on the royal armor,
That we the foe may face;
And trusting our Commander,
Be victors thro' His grace.

2 Lift up the royal standard,
Go forth our cause to win,
With helmet, shield, and buckler,
Against the hosts of sin. [Chorus]

3 With righteousness our breastplate,
The Spirit's sword in hand,
Still conq'ring and to conquer,
Press on at God's command. [Chorus]

4 Go sound the gospel trumpet,
Good news to all proclaim;
Go publish full salvation,
Thro' Christ, our Saviour's name. [Chorus]

5 His own right hand will guide us,
His love our steps defend;
Remember, He has promised
To keep us to the end. [Chorus]
