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

Soldiers of the King

Representative Text

1 Soldiers of the King, oh, hear the battle cry;
See the foe advance, the hosts are drawing nigh;
Naught have you to fear, tho’ ranks of sin assail;
Thanks be unto God, His army shall prevail.

Thanks be unto God, our Universal King!
Thanks be unto God, oh, let His praises ring!
They that overcome His chosen ones shall be;
Thanks be unto God who gives the victory!

2 Courage, bravely on, the Lord of Hosts is near;
Hear His gentle voice in accents sweet and clear,
Thrilling all the air above the battle’s din;
Christian soldiers, on, by faith your cause shall win. [Refrain]

3 Raise you banners high, your glorious cause proclaim;
Hosts of sin defy, thro’ Christ, your Captain’s name;
Sing the song of faith in triumph o’er and o’er;
Thanks be unto God, who lives forevermore! [Refrain]
