848. Standing Firm

1 Hear the voice of our Commander standing firm,
Holy pilgrims, take the armor, standing firm;
Shod in gospel preparation,
Sword and helmet of salvation,
Meekly hold the true position, standing firm.

Refrain:
Fear not, brethren, firm and true,
Whate’er thy foe may be;
Jesus fought the battle through,
And gives to us the victory.

2 If it be thy lot to suffer, standing firm,
Vilest slander tongue can utter, standing firm;
Shout and sing, for then is given,
Greater thy reward in heaven,
When the wicked far are driven, standing firm. [Refrain]

3 In the time of sore temptation, standing firm,
Grace will be thy sure salvation, standing firm;
Virtue crown thy soul with honor,
Sin resisted tempts no longer,
Faith in conflict waxes stronger, standing firm. [Refrain]

4 ’Mid the battle’s raging fury, standing firm,
Face the legions dark before thee, standing firm;
In the strength of our Redeemer,
Make the pow’rs of hell surrender,
Be a valiant overcomer, standing firm. [Refrain]
