Representative Text

1 Put on the armor of the Gospel,
Nor fear the mighty foe;
With the Cross of Christ before us,
In confidence we go.

Refrain:
The service of the Lord means “Victory,”
Glad victory, sure victory!
Then willingly we hear His “Follow me,”
Who leads to heights sublime.
We’ll follow in His footsteps ev’ry day,
His promise shall sustain us all the way;
The service of the Lord means “Victory,”
Yes, victory all the time.

2 With faith we storm the heights before us,
And ever upward climb;
For to follow where He leads us
Means vict’ry all the time. [Refrain]

3 Then let us never be discouraged,
But always of good cheer;
Tho’ the vict’ry seems far distant,
We know it must be near. [Refrain]
