We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Standing Firm

Hear the voice of our Commander standing firm

Author: D. S. Warner
Tune: [Hear the voice of our Commander standing firm]
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Hear the voice of our Commander standing firm,
Holy pilgrims, take the armor, standing firm;
Shod in gospel preparation,
Sword and helmet of salvation,
Meekly hold the true position, standing firm.

Fear not, brethren, firm and true,
Whate’er thy foe may be;
Jesus fought the battle through,
And gives to us the victory.

2 If it be thy lot to suffer, standing firm,
Vilest slander tongue can utter, standing firm;
Shout and sing, for then is given,
Greater thy reward in heaven,
When the wicked far are driven, standing firm. [Refrain]

3 In the time of sore temptation, standing firm,
Grace will be thy sure salvation, standing firm;
Virtue crown thy soul with honor,
Sin resisted tempts no longer,
Faith in conflict waxes stronger, standing firm. [Refrain]

4 ’Mid the battle’s raging fury, standing firm,
Face the legions dark before thee, standing firm;
In the strength of our Redeemer,
Make the pow’rs of hell surrender,
Be a valiant overcomer, standing firm. [Refrain]
