Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Put on the armor of our God

Put on the armor of our God

Author: E. C. Ellsworth
Tune: STAND FIRM (Tozer)
Published in 13 hymnals

Full Text

1. Put on the armor of our God,
Be strong to do His will;
Dare not go forth for once unarmed,
Thy foes would do thee ill.

Refrain:
Then stand! stand firm! defy the foe!
Thou in the Master's strength shall go,
Enduring to the end.
Then stand! stand firm! defy the foe!
Enduring to the end.

2. Put on the armor; girt with truth,
The work is not thine own;
Bind to thy heart the law of God,
Fulfilled by Christ alone. [Refrain]

3. Put on the armor; shod with peace
Thy feet shall firm endure;
Though snares beset and thorns may pierce,
He makes thy footsteps sure. [Refrain]

4. Put on the armor, take thy shield,
Faith in the risen Lord:
Once pierced with darts still aimed at thee,
He conquers with a word. [Refrain]
