1 Live on the field of battle!
Be earnest in the fight;
Stand forth with manly courage,
And struggle for the right.
Live! live! live! live!
On the field of battle.

2 Watch on the field of battle!
The foe is ev’rywhere;
His fiery darts fly quickly,
Like lightning thro’ the air.
Watch! watch! watch! watch!
On the field of battle.

3 Pray on the field of battle!
God works with those who pray;
His mighty arm can nerve us,
And make us win the day.
Pray! pray! pray! pray!
On the field of battle.

4 Die on the field of battle!
‘Tis noble thus to die;
God smiles on valiant soldiers,
Their record is on high.
Die! die! die! die!
On the field of battle.
