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, 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

Arm for the conflict

Full Text

1 There is warfare all around us;
There are foes who fain would wound us;
Yet what fear can e’er confound us,
If we trust the king we serve!

Arm for the conflict, soldiers true,
Christ, our Lord is king forevermore;
All our host will shout with victory,
For our king goes on before!
Christ is the captain whom we serve,
He it is who leads against the foe;
Fight! Fight! fight in His might!
Where He commands us be ready to go.

2 Satan’s forces march to meet us;
Satan, crafty foe, would cheat us;
Yet what pow’r can e’er defeat us,
If we trust the king we serve! [Refrain]

3 Christ, our king, is ever near us;
Evermore His word will cheer us;
Call for strength and He will hear us,
If we trust the king we serve! [Refrain]

4 See! their banners fall before us;
See the truce their heralds bore us;
Victory! O shout the chorus!
Hail, the blessed king we serve! [Refrain]
