1 O soldiers brave, in strength arise,
Equip with sword and shield;
The trumpet-blast rings thro’ the skies,
And calls thee to the field!
The hosts of sin and wrong,
In phalanx deep and strong,
Contend to sway the world today,
That should to Christ belong.
Strong in the Lord of hosts,
Press on to victory;
Arise, away! the call obey!
The Lord hath need of thee.
2 Above the noise and din of strife,
The Leader’s voice rings out;
While answ’ring millions of the foe,
In their derision shout,—
To arms without delay!
In strength divine, away!
Up! meet the foe, give blow for blow,
And you shall win the day. [Refrain]
3 Go forward! not in human strength,
But in Jehovah’s might;
For who thus goes shall put, at length,
A thousand foes to flight!
Guard well each secret place;
With caution run the race;
In Jesus find your strength of mind,
And full sustaining grace. [Refrain]
