Representative Text

1 There is warfare all around us;
There are foes who fain would wound us;
Yet what fear can e’er confound us,
If we trust the king we serve!

Arm for the conflict, soldiers true,
Christ, our Lord is king forevermore;
All our host will shout with victory,
For our king goes on before!
Christ is the captain whom we serve,
He it is who leads against the foe;
Fight! Fight! fight in His might!
Where He commands us be ready to go.

2 Satan’s forces march to meet us;
Satan, crafty foe, would cheat us;
Yet what pow’r can e’er defeat us,
If we trust the king we serve! [Refrain]

3 Christ, our king, is ever near us;
Evermore His word will cheer us;
Call for strength and He will hear us,
If we trust the king we serve! [Refrain]

4 See! their banners fall before us;
See the truce their heralds bore us;
Victory! O shout the chorus!
Hail, the blessed king we serve! [Refrain]
