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!

Refrain:
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]
