We'll fight for our Captain

Representative Text

1 We’ll fight for our Captain, we’ll fight in His strength,
For thus we are certain of vict’ry at length,
What glad songs of triumph, He gives us to sing,
We’ll fight for our Saviour and King.

We’ll fight for our Captain, we’ll fight for our King,
And marching to battle His praises we’ll sing,
We’ll fight for His honour, new triumphs to bring,
We’ll fight for our Saviour and King.

2 He gives us His armour, the true and the tried,
And each of His soldiers is fully supplied
With sword and with helmet, with breast plate and shield
His soldiers His weapons must wield. [Refrain]

3 Then be not discouraged, the battle’s the Lord’s,
And ev’ry encounter new vict’ry affords,
With His hands upon us, our arms are made strong,
To Him doth all honour belong. [Refrain]

4 With Him for Commander, the vict’ry is sure,
No army He leadeth defeat can endure,
So as we are marching, His colours we’ll show,
Nor falter when facing the fore. [Refrain]
