Representative Text

1 Be strong in the Lord,
Tho’ surrounded by foes;
Be true to your king,
Tho’ all hell shall oppose;
He’ll conquer their legions,
He’ll vanquish their throng;
The Lord is our captain,
He leads us along.

Then awake! then awake!
Now arise! now arise!
Put on the whole armor,
Be strong in the Lord,

2 We fight not with flesh,
But with powers unseen;
We wrestle ’gainst darkness,
Without and within;
The conflict is raging,
Be valiant and strong,
For God is our tower,
Our shield, and our song. [Refrain]

3 With loins girt with truth,
We will march to the fight,
And righteousness wear
As a breastplate of light;
Salvation our helmet,
Bestowed by our Lord,
The sword of the Spirit,
His conquering Word. [Refrain]

4 Our leader has promised
A bright starry crown,
And beckons us onward
To fields of renown;
We hasten to follow
His banner unfurled,
And trusting in Jesus,
We’ll conquer the world. [Refrain]
