Representative Text

1 Come and join the march for glory,
Bear a noble part;
Bring the blessed “old, old story,”
Home to ev’ry heart.

Take the fort of sin and darkness,
Jesus leads us on;
Take the fort for Christ our Saviour,
And win a starry crown.

2 Take the Bible precious treasure,
Faith shall be our shield;
Follow Jesus, do His pleasure,
Never, never yield. [Chorus]

3 Take the helmet of Salvation,
And the Spirit’s Sword;
Bear the truth to ev’ry nation,—
Battle for the Lord. [Chorus]

4 God of battles will defend us,
To our help will come;
Angel guards will e’er attend us,
And conduct us home. [Chorus]
