1 Falter not, falter not in the battle for the Lord,
Carry on, carry on!
Strength to fight for the right He has promised in His word.
Carry on, carry on!

Refrain:
Carry on, carry on!
For the right win the day,
Ere the time for vict’ry shall be gone,
Carry on, carry on, carry on!

2 Do not stay on the way, there are battles to be won,
Carry on, carry on!
Hasten on, ever on, for the day will soon be done,
Carry on, carry on! [Refrain]

3 Those who fall send a call to the brave who still remain,
Carry on, carry on!
In the work of the Lord we shall labor not in vain,
Carry on, carry on! [Refrain]
