Representative Text

1. Soldiers of the heav'nly legion,
Marching thro' this hostile region,
All the powers of hell withstanding,
Christ Himself His hosts commanding,
Hear your Captain calling to you;--
Christ is Conqu'ror, Hallelujah!

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Christ is Conqu'ror!
Hallelujah! Christ is Conqu'ror!
What tho' earth and sin may woo you,
Christ is Conqu'ror! Hallelujah!

2. Foes may throng the heav'nly places,
Let us set like flint our faces;
All their host need not alarm you;
All their darts will fail to harm you;
Hear your Captain calling to you;--
Christ is Conqu'ror, Hallelujah!

3. Trust no arm of flesh; 'twill fail you;
Only Jesus can avail you;
He, who once returned victorious,
Leads you forth to triumph glorious;
Hear your Captain calling to you;--
Christ is Conqu'ror, Hallelujah!

4. Forward! soldiers of the legion,
Win for Him each hostile region;
Till the banner of salvation
Floats o'er ev'ry heathen nation;
And the heav'ns shall answer to you;--
Christ is Conqu'ror, Hallelujah!
