1 It is hard to keep the narrow path within,
To withhold thy steps from luring ways of sin;
There is One who will the conflict surely win,
For the battle is the Lord’s.

Refrain:
For the battle is the Lord’s,
Yes, the battle is the Lord’s;
In His word we read He’ll to triumph lead,
For the battle is the Lord’s.

2 Do you pass thro’ clouds of gloom and discontent?
Are thy days in pain, thy nights in sorrow spent?
O remember He will help o’er thee is bent,
For the battle is the Lord’s. [Refrain]

3 Does it sometimes seem that God has hid His face,
That the hosts of evil walk with joy apace?
Know that sin will soon be vanquished in the race,
For the battle is the Lord’s. [Refrain]

4 O thou weary one, ‘tis not for thee to moan,
For the Christian is in conflict ne’er alone;
He’ll surround thee with the legions of His throne,
For the battle is the Lord’s. [Refrain]
