We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 We've listed in a holy war,
Battling for the Lord!
Eternal life, our guiding star,
Battling for the Lord!

We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
And then we'll rest at home.

2 We've girded on our armor bright,
Battling for the Lord!
Our Captain's word our strength and might,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

3 We'll stand like heroes on the field,
Battling for the Lord!
And in his strength we'll never yield,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

4 Though sin and death our way oppose,
Battling for the Lord!
Through grace we'll conquer all our foes,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

5 And when our glorious war is o'er,
Conqu'rors through the Lord!
We'll shout salvation evermore,
Conqu'rors through the Lord! [Refrain]
