1 Courage, soldiers, courage! Forward, march away!
Face the foes that threaten, Do not dare delay.
Fight the battle bravely, Christ is watching near,
Under this Commander you have naught to fear.
Courage, courage, tho' the foe be strong,
Forward, ever forward, march against the wrong;
Onward, onward, trusting as you go,
Jesus goes before you as you face the foe.
2 Courage, youthful soldiers! See, upon your path,
Envy, pride, and hatred, Selfishness and wrath;
Speedily they gather, ready for the fight,
Meet them and defeat them in the Saviour's might. [Chorus]
3 Fight the giant evils, Never pause or shrink;
Fight the love of money, Fight the love of drink.
March against them boldly, put the foe to flight,
Take the gospel armor and defend the right. [Chorus]
