Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

O Faithless, Fearful Army

Full Text

1 O faithless, fearful army,
for you the Lord doth fight;
for you, through oceans stormy,
he cleaves his path of light.
Determined is the issue,
the crucial vict'ry past;
and God, who has redeemed you,
upholds you to the last.

2 Why downcast, why despairing,
in face of hostile power,
as though alone you're bearing
the stresses of this hour?
To death and hell appointed,
see conqu'ring in your place
the Son of God, th'Anointed,
elect by sov'reign grace!

3 His death and resurrection
he clothes upon his folk,
bound to him in subjection
by faith and love and hope.
O warrior true and glorious,
thou hast God's battle won!
Lord Christ, for us victorious,
thy perfect work is done.
