Representative Text

1 O Jesus, mighty Captain,
Thy soldiers we would be,
For Thy great vict'ries may be won
By children such as we.

We'll fight, for the foe is watchful,
We'll fight, for the foe is strong;
With Jesus to lead us onward,
The struggle will not be long.

2 Thy shield of faith and power,
Thine armor from above;
These would we wear, while floateth to
The world our banner, "Love." [Chorus]

3 Then keep us ever faithful,
Alert, and brave, and strong
To hear our Captain's orders, and
To conquer sin and wrong. [Chorus]
