1 Soldiers on the battle field,
Fight to win, fight to win;
Have no tho’t that you will yield,
Soldiers, fight to win.

Fight to win, fight to win,
Never yield an inch to sin;
Keep up the fight both day and night,
Soldiers, fight, fight to win. [Refrain]

2 Tho’ the strife be long and hard,
Fight to win, fight to win;
Courage is its own reward,
Soldiers, fight to win. [Refrain]

3 Follow where your Leader leads,
Fight to win, fight to win;
Crown your lives with noble deeds,
Soldiers, fight to win. [Refrain]
