1 The war is on, the battle cry is ringing out:
“To arms, to arms!” King Jesus leads the way;
The Armageddon forces of the Lord of Hosts
Are mobilizing for the mighty fray.

Refrain:
The Armageddon hosts are gath'ring,
The battle-line is drawn today;
We'll ne'er surrender, for our Defender,
The Prince of Peace, will lead the way
The Mighty God will be our Fortress,
The gates of hell shall not prevail;
In battle glorious with King victorious,
We'll never, never, never fail,
In battle glorious, with God victorious,
We cannot fail,
We cannot fail.

2 Ten thousand times ten thousand thousand soldiers come,
From ev'ry kindred, tribe and tongue and race:
Celestial hosts shall join us in the glad acclaim,
And on His brow the crown of glory place. [Refrain]

3 The kingdoms of this sin-cursed world shall now become
The Kingdom of our Lord and Savior King;
The Prince of Peace in royal proclamation comes,
And heav'n and earth in mighty paeons ring. [Refrain]

4 Two worlds await the issue of this mighty war,
And soldiers of the King of kings are we:
We'll plant the cross on ev'ry fort in ev'ry land,
And all the earth to Jesus bow the knee. [Refrain]
