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.

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]
