Representative Text

How bright its host appears;
Its ranks are marshalled, ev’ry one,
And filled with volunteers.

There is no place for coward hearts,
Who from their colors fly;
The gospel calls for loyal ones
Who do not fear to die.

2 The trump of war is sounding now,
Its signal well we know;
It bids the soldiers of the cross
Take arms against the foe. [Refrain]

3 The battle storm may do its worst,
Our ardor still shall rise;
We’ll never lay our armor down
Till faith presents the prize. [Refrain]

4 And when by grace our vict’ry won,
Like stars in heaven we shine,
We’ll shout and sing thro’ endless years,
The praise, O Lord, be thine. [Refrain]
