Representative Text

1 Brave men are needed for Christ today,
Out where the battle is long;
Forth at the summons, the call obey,
Quit you like men, be strong!

Refrain:
Quit you like men, be strong,
Hard is the fight and long;
Onward and fail not,
Forward and quail not,
Quit you like men, be strong!

2 Seeking not ease nor applause of men,
Enter the fight against wrong;
Suff’ring defeat, but to rise again,
Quit you like men, be strong! [Refrain]

3 What tho’ you suffer, do not complain;
Cheer your faint heart with a song;
Let not your courage grow slack and wane,
Quit you like men, be strong! [Refrain]

4 Steadfast, unyielding, the battle press,
You to God’s army belong;
Clad in his armor of righteousness,
Vict’ry’s assured, be strong! [Refrain]
