1 Strike our tents, the night is over!
See, the shadows one by one
Fade before the coming splendor
Of the morning’s golden sun.
Strike our tents! the trumpet sounding
Bids us now our march begin;
Strike our tents! the battle rages!
There’s a victory we must win.
2 Strike our tents! no time to linger
When the foe is on our track;
Holy voices now are calling,
Follow Jesus; look not back. [Refrain]
3 Strike our tents, nor heed the arrows
By the wary tempter hurled;
Trust in Him, our great Deliverer,
He who overcame the world. [Refrain]
4 Ne’er desert our post of duty
Till the strife of war is done;
Then in realms of endless glory
Shout thro’ Christ the victory won. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9305
