Full Text

1 Tho’ mighty hosts of sin assail,
Appalling to the sight,
We’ll onward go, for this we know—
We’re fighting for the right.

Refrain:
We’re fighting, fighting, fighting for the right,
The foe must all take, the foe must all take flight,
We’ll onward go, for this we know,
We’re fighting, fighting, fighting for the right.

2 Tho’ fierce and long the battle’s tide,
‘Twill not our souls affright;
Jehovah’s pow’r is on our side—
We’re fighting for the right. [Refrain]

3 With one accord, then onward, all!
The vict’ry lies in sight;
The mighty foe must surely fall—
We’re fighting for the right. [Refrain]
