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 In the holy Christian warfare,
We the help of Christ may claim;
And through grace divine may conquer,
Overcoming in His name.

Overcoming in His name,
Overcoming in His name;
Praise the Lord! we shall be victors,
Overcoming in His Name.

2 Tho’ the foes we meet be many,
Surely we have naught to fear,
Trusting in the “Friend of sinners,”
Who is ever, ever near. [Refrain]

3 Let us never grow faint-hearted,
Or in weakness yield to strife;
But be loyal to our Leader,
And obtain the crown of life. [Refrain]

4 To each soul that overcometh,
Heaven’s fadeless palms belong;
When beyond all sounds of conflict,
Swells the victor’s glad new song. [Refrain]
