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

Refrain:
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.” [Refrain]

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