Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Strike our tents, the night is over!
See, the shadows one by one
Fade before the coming splendor
Of the morning’s golden sun.

Refrain:
Strike our tents! the trumpet sounding
Bids us now our march begin;
Strike our tents! the battle rages!
There’s a victory we must win.

2 Strike our tents! no time to linger
When the foe is on our track;
Holy voices now are calling,
Follow Jesus; look not back. [Refrain]

3 Strike our tents, nor heed the arrows
By the wary tempter hurled;
Trust in Him, our great Deliverer,
He who overcame the world. [Refrain]

4 Ne’er desert our post of duty
Till the strife of war is done;
Then in realms of endless glory
Shout thro’ Christ the victory won. [Refrain]
