Representative Text

1 Again we have come in Jehovah’s name,
The battle to fight and the vict’ry gain,
We’ll gird on the armor and to the conflict go,
And in the name of Jesus we’ll conquer every foe.

Refrain:
Then rally! rally! rally round the cross!
No one ever there will suffer loss;
And in the name of Jesus we’ll face the deadly foe,
And victory will perch upon our banner as we go.

2 When Israel of old marched around the wall,
They blew with their trumpets and shouted all,
Then down came the walls, and they took the mighty king;
To God they gave the glory, who did salvation bring. [Refrain]

3 Our fathers, we know, to the Lord were true,
They took up the sword and they battled through,
They’re safe now in glory, and looking down today;
They call to you and me to be faithful in the fray. [Refrain]

4 We all must engage if a crown we’d wear,
And yonder with Jesus the glory share;
Then let all be true as we into battle go,
And rescue every sinner from death and all its woe. [Refrain]

5 The conflict will soon be forever o’er,
The summons will come from the other shore;
And then home to glory we will rejoicing go,
To praise him for the victory he gave us here below. [Refrain]
