1. Gird on the sword and armor,
Go raise the banner high,
The Captain of salvation
To thee is ever nigh.
Then wave the glorious banner,
Press forward in His name;
And soon thy guide and captain
Will victory proclaim.
2. Gird on the sword and armor,
Let faith be thy strong shield;
His promise shall sustain thee
On every battlefield. [Refrain]
3. Gird on the sword and armor,
Press on the foe to fight;
No enemy can harm thee,
For God sustains the right. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #1778
