1 O Christian, gird the armor on,
And press the fight with sin!
Go forth against the hosts of wrong,
Go forth our cause to win;
The conflict wildly rages,
No longer, then, delay,
But, trusting in Jehovah’s might,
Go! watch, and fight, and pray.

Hallelujah! they are marching on,
Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
The armies of the living God
Are marching on.

2 O Christian, gird the armor on,
And hasten to the field;
Against the powers of darkness go,
Determined not to yield!
Clad in a full salvation,
The Spirit’s sword in hand,
From victory unto victory go!
It is the Lord’s command. [Refrain]

3 O Christian, gird the armor on,
The world is watching thee;
With prayer and supplication press
Along to victory!
Be loyal to His service,
His truth to all proclaim;
God loves a valiant warrior,
Then go in Jesus’ name. [Refrain]
