Representative Text

1 Arm, soldiers for the fight,
Satan is massing
Foes on our left and right,
Arm, soldiers arm!
Surely our Leader’s might
Gives strength surpassing;
He calls from Heaven’s height,
Arm, soldiers arm.

Clasp on the breastplate,
Seize the trusty sword;
Take up your shield of faith,
And call upon the Lord;
Go forth and bravely fight,
Face the wily foe,
"Faithfulness" the watchword,
Go, soldiers, go.

2 What tho’ our souls be worn,
Night fast advancing,
What tho’ our plumes be torn,
Bravely we’ll fight!
Where e’er our flag be borne,
Prospects enhancing,
There wait we ’till the morn,
Watch thro’ the night! [Refrain]

3 Full soon the sun will rise,
Victory bringing;
Loud shouts will fill the skies,
Glad praises ring;
March we to take the prize,
Hosannas singing,
Bright realms will greet our eyes,
Christ reign our king! [Refrain]
