1 Out in the conflict with Satan today
Millions assemble in battle array;
Follow your Leader and hast to the fray;
Christian soldier, do your best.

Chorus:
Do your best and follow where He leads you;
(Christian, do you very best and follow where He leads you;)
Do your best if at the front He needs you;
(Christian, do you very best if at the front He needs you;)
Till the warfare's over and in Heav'n we rest,
(Till the warfare's over and in Heav'n we safely rest,)
Christian soldier, do your best. (your best.)

2 Fling wide the banner, afar let it wave;
Stand like a hero, courageous and brave;
Strong in the strength of the "Mighty to save,"
Christian soldier, do you best. [Chorus]

3 Trust in the arm of Jehovah alone,
His is the battle and we are His own;
Hardness endure, nor the armor lay down;
Christian soldier, do you best. [Chorus]

4 Less than our best shall we offer our King?
Less than our best to His feet shall we bring?
Till in the Homeland the vict'ry we sing,
Christian soldier, do your best. [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
