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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 We are soldiers of the King,
We’ll battle for the right,
Valiant hosts will a vict’ry bring,
O’er Satan’s angry might;
Let us falter not nor yield,
For right shall conquer wrong,
We’ll never desert the battle-field
Till sounds the victor-song.

O we’re soldiers of the King,
We are battling for the right,
Valiant hosts will a glorious vict’ry bring
Over Satan’s angry might.
Tho’ the tempter his darts may send,
Let us firm and loyal be;
If on Jesus our Captain we depend,
We shall more than conqu’rorsbe!

2 Let us bravely the tempter meet,
And trust our King on high,
O we ne’er shall know defeat,
If we on him rely;
He will give us strength anew,
He’ll gird us for the strife;
O let us be soldiers brave and true,
Throughout the march of life! [Refrain]
