1 Out to the conflict with brave hearts we go,
Facing the armies of the Wrong;
For he that believeth the blessing receiveth,—
Faith makes the weakest soldier strong.

Faith is the victory! Now be the banner wide unfurled!
Faith is the victory! By it we’ll overcome the world!
For he that believeth on Jesus the Son,
Already hat the vict’ry won.

2 Out to the conflict,—we go not alone;
Angels of God are close at hand;
For he that endureth the promise secureth,—
Faith claims the conq’ring heav’nly band. [Refrain]

3 Out to the conflict in Christ’s name we go,
Chanting the victor’s song of praise;
For he that believeth the vict’ry receiveth,—
E’en now our shout of joy we raise. [Refrain]
