1 Tell the story true of the noble band
Who of old went forth at their Lord’s command—
Of the faithful few, and the fight they won
In the name of God, and of Gideon.

Refrain:
I belong to Gideon’s band, I do,
To Gideon’s band, the tried and true;
And my light shall shine till the fight is won
In the name of God, and of Gideon.

2 All the fearful fled to their tents at first;
Others at the brook stopped to quench their thirst;
But the faithful few still went marching on
In the name of God, and of Gideon. [Refrain]

3 Each one stood, at last, in the dead of night
With a broken pitcher and burning light,
Till the victory by their faith was won
In the name of God, and of Gideon. [Refrain]

4 We are soldiers, now, with a fight to win;
There are foes without, there are foes within;
But the faithful band still is marching on
In the name of God, and of Gideon. [Refrain]
