1 We are soldiers of the Lord,
’Neath His flag we’re called to fight;
Sin and evil are our foes,
We are battling for the right.

Refrain:
Come and join our little band,
Come and join our little band,
We are sure to win the day;
We have naught to dread or fear,
We have naught to dread or fear,
For our Savior, blessed Savior leads the way.

2 Strong and subtle is our foe,
But our Lord is stronger still;
He will guide us as we go,
He’ll defend us from all ill. [Refrain]

3 Though we falter on the road,
He will never chide or frown,
For He knew how weak we were
When He chose us for His own. [Refrain]

4 All He asks is loyal love,
Earnest effort for the right;
For the battle is His own,
We shall win it by His might. [Refrain]
