1 We are faithful soldiers of the cross,
Daily fighting self and sin—
And the battle must be fiercely fought
If we hope a crown to win.
Lose not heart if sometimes ye shall fail,
Ne’er despair nor make retreat;
From thy failure rise to noble aim,
Wrest some vict’ry from defeat!
We’re marching on to stronger heights,
The banner of Christ before;
We ask not ease, nor sweet delights,
But we’ll fight till the battle’s o’er!
2 Lift on high the standard of the cross,
Where our Saviour bled and died;
In that sign we conquer ev’ry foe,
Thro’ the Christ, the crucified.
God is guide, and He will ever aid,
He is mighty to defend;
Never, never need ye be dismayed,
he will prove thy steadfast Friend! [Refrain]
3 Ask great things, and God will surely hear,
If His mercy ye will claim;
“More than conqu’rors” shall His soldiers be;
Ask, then ask in Jesus’ name!
Courage! patience! soldiers of the cross,
Bravely serving till ye die;
Joy awaiteth ev’ry faithful heart,
Peace is coming by and by! [Refrain]
