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 Girded for battle our forces we bring,
Fearless and faithful to follow our King;
Ready the legions of evil to brave,
Trusting our Leader, the Mighty to save.

Victory! victory! this our acclaim,
Victory! victory! praise to His name;
Sing till the ransom’d that watch from the sky,
Send back the answer, “Your triumph is nigh.”

2 Girded for battle our pathway is clear,
Since He is for us no danger we fear,
Legions can never His soldiers enslave,
He, our Commander, is mighty to save. [Refrain]

3 Girded for battle, now on, to the field,
Truth is our watchword and faith is our shield,
Fierce tho’ the conflict its peril we’ll brave,
He, our Deliv’rer, is mighty to save. [Refrain]
