1 Though a mighty foe assail thee,
Do not let thy courage fail thee.
Soldier, do not yield,
For God is on the Field.

God is on the field,
He will be thy shield
He can put thy foes to flight,
Only trust His promise true,
For God is on the field with you.

2 He can make thy darkness brighten,
He can make thy burden lighten,
Soldier, do not fear,
For God is very near. [Refrain]

3 When thy weakness seems appalling,
Hear the voice of Jesus calling,
“Loved one, lean on me,
For I have strength for thee.” [Refrain]
