1 Stand firm when the enemy charges
Your ranks in all his might,
When sore, indeed, is the danger,
Which lies in the hot, fierce fight;
Cow'r not in that hour of conflict
When the test comes unto you;
But in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself be true!

We are soldiers, soldiers,
Soldiers of a heav'nly King,
We are soldiers, soldiers,
And we'll make His praises ring,
We'll make His praises ring forever.

2 Stand firm, and not for an instant
Let the coward's thought be yours,
Or the heart that's weak and trembling,
Nor the heart that not endures;
But steel your breast to the conflict,
With courage your soul endue,
And in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself be true! [Chorus]

3 Stand firm, and so shall falter
The enemy at last,
Grow weak and yield the conquest,
And the trial, will be past;
And so shall glorious vict'ry,
O'er sin come unto you,
Since you, in that hour of hours
To God, and yourself were true! [Chorus]
