Marching Orders

Full Text

1 There's a war to wage with sin,
Foes without and foes within,
Gird your armor on!
Gird your armor on!
We've a Captain tried and true,
And He says to me, to you,
It is time to dare and do--
Gird your armor on!

We will march, march, march,
By night at well as day,
We are stepping ever firm and steady!
Yes, we'll march, march, march,
Where He may lead the way--
When the order comes to march, we are ready!

2 Tho' today the warfare cease,
And the world seem hushed in peace,
Keep your armor on!
Keep your armor on!
Not far off the campfires shine;
soon there'll be for thee and thine
Fighting all along the line--
Keep your armor on! [Refrain]

3 When our Captain gives command,
At "Attention!" we will stand,
With our armor on!
With our armor on!
We are soldiers of His grace;
We shall see Him face to face,
And He;ll find us in our place
With our armor on! [Refrain]
