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 God’s own armor, for our use is shining in His Word,
“Shield of Faith” with helmet gleaming, spirit’s giltt’ring sword;
With these weapons we will fight the battle’s of the Lord,—
Till our God, in heav’n, shall crown us.

Rejoice! rejoice! O let our voices ring!
Rejoice! rejoice! We’re going to see the King.
In that world of peace and joy where holy angels sing,
There God Himself will crown us.

2 Though the fierce, relentless foe on ev’ry hand we meet,
We will tread them ev’ry one as dust beneath our feet;
By the help of Christ we’ll win a victory complete;
And our God, in heav’n, will crown us. [Refrain]

3 Though the conflict may be long, the foe will strike in vain,
Soon upon the field of strife they’ll lie among the slain.
More than conquerors thro’ Christ we’ll rise with Him to reign,
Then our God, in heav’n, will crown us. [Refrain]
