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.

Through all the changings of my life

Through all the changings of my life

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Through all the changings of my life,
I have a constant war and strife;
Satan's pow'r, the world and sin,
They strive without, and war within.

2 I daily feel their fierce attack,
Their force and scheme by which they act,
Would soon prove more than I could bear,
Was I not kept by sov'reign care.

3 My soul arise against these foes!
Their force and their assaults oppose;
In ev'ry combat I shall stand,
Supported by superior hand.

4 Jesus, my captain, prince and head,
Shall furnish me with all I need;
His grace, his promise, and his word,
Will be my helmet, shield, and sword.

5 With these bless'd weapons I can fight,
And put mine enemies to flight;
They shall at last be forc'd to yield
And I shall gain and keep the field.
