1 Soldier, go! Thy vow is spoken:
Counting earthly gain but loss,
Thou henceforth
must bear the token
Of the cross.

2 Strengthened with the sevenfold blessing
Of the Spirit here outpoured,
Thou must dare to live confessing
Christ thy Lord.

3 Trust in Him: though sore temptation
Oft thy fainting heart assail,
Yet the Prince of thy salvation
Shall prevail.

4 Faithful in His service ever
Fight, nor fear the battleā€™s tide:
Hosts of hell can harm thee never
At His side.

5 He, His mighty arm extending.
Still hath power from sin to save,
Though thy warfare hath no ending
But the grave.

6 Then, when over death victorious
Thou shalt lay thine armour down,
With the saints in heaven glorious
Take the crown.
