Full Text

1 Forth to the fight ye ransom’d,
Mighty in God’s own might
Stemming the tide of battle,
Routing the hosts of night.

Refrain:
Lift up the Blood red Banner,
Wield ye the Victor’s sword,
Raise ye the Christian’s war-cry:
“The cross of Christ the Lord.”

2 Fear not the din of battle,
Follow where he has trod,
Perfecting strength in weakness,
Jesus incarnate God. [Refrain]

3 Angels around us hover,
Succor in time of need,
Ever at hand to strengthen,
Guardians they indeed. [Refrain]

4 Arm ye against the battle,
Watch ye, and fast and pray,
Peace shall succeed the warfare,
Night shall be changed to day. [Refrain]
