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. I’ve enlisted in the army of the Lord today,
Fighting ever for the truth and right;
Safely guided by Jehovah in the King’s highway,
He will lead His army day and night.

I’ve enlisted in the army
I am pressing onward day by day,
I’ve enlisted in the army,
And I’m walking in the King’s highway.

2. I’ve enlisted as a soldier for Immanuel,
And I’m going forth to press the fray,
Fighting ’neath the Gospel banner ev’ry foe will quell,
And I’ll gain the vict’ry day by day. [Refrain]

3. I’ve enlisted in the army of the heav’nly King,
Tho’ the battle may be fierce and long;
Some day I shall come rejoicing and my trophies bring,
Then I’ll sing and shout the victor’s song. [Refrain]
