147. Christian soldiers in the conflict!

Christian soldiers in the conflict!
Bear the banner of the cross;
Rich reward shall crown the victor,
More than recompense, for loss.

Not with paltry palms that wither
Shall the brow be gaily crowned;
But with light that shines eternal,
And with heavenly joy renowned.

Yours are mansions fair and comely,
There your souls in bliss shall rest;
Stars shall sparkle in their radiance
On the pathway of the blest.

Earthly joys are faint and fleeting,
Earthly favours quickly fade;
Heavenward lift your eyes, expecting
There your true reward is laid.

God be praised, who crowns the victor;
Christ be praised, who saves from sin;
Equal praise to God the Spirit,
By whose aid we fight and win.
