Representative Text

O SOLDIER, awake, for the strife is at hand,
With helmet and shield, and a sword in thy hand,
To meet the bold tempter, go, fearlessly go,
And stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.

Refrain:
Stand like the brave! Stand like the brave!
Stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe!

2 Whatever thy danger take heed and beware,
But turn not thy back, for no armour is there;
If thou wouldst the legions of darkness o’erthrow,
Then stand like the brave with thy face to the foe.

3 Press on, never doubting, thy captain is near
With grace to support, and with comfort to cheer;
His love like a stream in the desert will flow;
Then stand like the brave, with thy face to the foe.
