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.

Battle for the Lord

Whoe'er would win the battle

Representative Text

1 Whoe'er would win the battle,
Must never mind the blows;
Whoe'er would enter heaven,
Must not turn back for foes;
But, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord.

Refrain:
I'll battle for the Lord,
Yes, battle for the Lord;
I'll shout for Truth and Victory
And battle for the Lord.

2 God's little bands are mighty,
When girded with his might;
And greatest wrongs are helpless
Before the smallest right.
Then, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Your enemies may gather,
Like clouds in days of storms;
But Truth's bright blade, like lightning,
Shall scatter their proud forms,
Then, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]

4 The wrongs shall all be conquered,
And every foe submit;
All, in that day that's coming,
Shall fall at Jesus' feet.
But now, take all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
And shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]
