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.
1 Go bravely forth to battle
Ye soldiers of the Lord,
Fear not, for ye shall conquer
Through His almighty word.
Then bravely forth to battle,
In this, God’s holy strife,
And he that overcometh,
Shall gain the crown of life.
2 The Lord Himself will lead you,
Shall arm you for the fight,—
‘Gainst every foe sustain you,
And shield you by His might. [Refrain]
3 Leave not the path of duty,
And none can bring you harm,
For God to shield His faithful,
Makes bare His mighty arm. [Refrain]
4 And, though his “name is legion,”
The foe shrinks back with shame,
Before the feeblest Christian
Who fights in Jesus’ name. [Refrain]Source: Christian Endeavor Edition of Sacred Songs No. 1 #253
