We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
