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.

Soldier of Christ, adieu

Soldier of Christ, adieu

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Soldier of Christ adieu!
Thy conflicts here are past;
Thy Lord hath brought thee through,
And giv'n the crown at last,
Rejoice to wear the glorious prize,
Rejoice with God in paradise.

2 There all thy suff'rings cease,
There all thy griefs are o'er;
The pris'ner is at peace,
The mourner weeps no more;
From man's oppressive tyranny
Thou liv'st, thou liv'st for ever free.

3 Thou out of great distress
To thy reward art past;
Triumphant happiness,
And joys that always last:
Thanks be to God, who set thee free,
And gave thee final victory.
