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 Stand firm when the enemy charges
Your ranks in all his might,
When sore, indeed, is the danger,
Which lies in the hot, fierce fight;
Cow'r not in that hour of conflict
When the test comes unto you;
But in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself be true!

We are soldiers, soldiers,
Soldiers of a heav'nly King,
We are soldiers, soldiers,
And we'll make His praises ring,
We'll make His praises ring forever.

2 Stand firm, and not for an instant
Let the coward's thought be yours,
Or the heart that's weak and trembling,
Nor the heart that not endures;
But steel your breast to the conflict,
With courage your soul endue,
And in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself be true! [Chorus]

3 Stand firm, and so shall falter
The enemy at last,
Grow weak and yield the conquest,
And the trial, will be past;
And so shall glorious vict'ry,
O'er sin come unto you,
Since you, in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself were true! [Chorus]
