Representative Text

1 Gird thy sword and make thine armor strong,
Day by day the warfare rages long;
Join the cause of right against the wrong,—
Thine shall be the victor’s crown!

Refrain:
Glorious crown the Saviour’s hand will hold,
Priceless crown of everlasting gold,
Heav’nly crown that never will grow old,—
Thine shall be the victor’s crown!

2 Fear thou not, though fiends thy cause deride;
Fear thou not, though long the angels hide;
God Himself is ever on thy side,—
Thine shall be the victor’s crown! [Refrain]

3 Forward still! the vict’ry must be won,
Ere life’s shade falls low at set of sun;
Rich reward awaits the work well done,—
Thine shall be the victor’s crown! [Refrain]

4 Firmly stand! O falter not, nor yield;
Bravely fight till thou hast won the field;
“Faith in God” engraved upon thy shield,—
Thine shall be the victor’s crown! [Refrain]
