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. Gird on the sword and armor,
Go raise the banner high,
The Captain of salvation
To thee is ever nigh.

Then wave the glorious banner,
Press forward in His name;
And soon thy guide and captain
Will victory proclaim.

2. Gird on the sword and armor,
Let faith be thy strong shield;
His promise shall sustain thee
On every battlefield. [Refrain]

3. Gird on the sword and armor,
Press on the foe to fight;
No enemy can harm thee,
For God sustains the right. [Refrain]
