Representative Text

1 Put on the gospel armor,
For Jesus take your stand;
Go forth a valiant soldier,
Under the Lord’s command.

Press on, fight on,
‘Till victory is won,
Then reign in heav’n forever
With God’s beloved Son.

2 Lift high the blood-stained banner,
Send forth the battle cry,
The truth and right shall conquer,
The victor’s crown is nigh. [Refrain]

3 Then on ‘mid strife of battle,
Armed well with faith and prayer,
For he that over cometh,
A crown of life shall wear. [Refrain]
