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

Fall Into Line

Wait not, the conflict is raging today

Author: R. H. Shaftoe
Tune: [Wait not, the conflict is raging today]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Wait not, the conflict is raging today,
God calls for you then why longer delay,
Fall into line with the brave and the true,
Do with your might what your hands find to do.

Fall into line, yes, we’ll fall into line.
Clothed for the conflict in armor divine,
Marching to battle, we’ll sing as we go,
Jesus, our leader, will vanquish the foe.

2 Jesus, the Master needs soldiers like you,
Who in the conflict will always prove true,
Fall into line, boldly march to the fight,
Sin must be vanquished, then stand for the right. [Refrain]

3 Fear not, ‘tis Christ who calls you today,
Come to Him now, He will show you the way,
Come and be saved by His power divine,
Then with His soldiers just fall into line. [Refrain]
