Representative Text

1 Soldiers on life’s battle field,
Be thou valiant, bold and strong!
In the strife with cheerful zeal,
Urge the Savior’s cause along.

Refrain:
Onward, onward, onward to glory,
Yield not to the wily foe!
Vict’ry and heaven now are before thee,
Shout, shout your triumphs as you go.

2 Jesus calls us to the field!
He will lead us evermore,
‘Neath His banner, ne’er to yield,
Till the mighty conflict’s o’er. [Refrain]

3 Then in yonder world of light,
We will lay our armor down;
And, ‘mid throngs of angels bright,
Each receive a starry crown. [Refrain]
