Representative Text

1 We are soldiers of the Lord,
Marching on with shield and sword,
‘Neath the banner bright
Of Truth and Right;
We shall conquer in His might.

Refrain:
We’ll march, we’ll fight,
For Truth and the Right,
In God’s own might,
Till we shout the victory.

2 We are striving for the lost
In the ranks of Satan’s host,
Till the captives be
From bondage free;
For in Christ is liberty. [Refrain]

3 With the hosts of sense and sin,
Foes without and foes within,
We will battle still,
With royal will;
We shall fear no coming ill. [Refrain]

4 We shall overcome our foes,
Though the powers of hell oppose,
For the Right is strong
To conquer Wrong,
Though the battle may be long. [Refrain]
