Representative Text

1 We've listed in a holy war,
Battling for the Lord!
Eternal life, our guiding star,
Battling for the Lord!

We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
And then we'll rest at home.

2 We've girded on our armor bright,
Battling for the Lord!
Our Captain's word our strength and might,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

3 We'll stand like heroes on the field,
Battling for the Lord!
And in his strength we'll never yield,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

4 Though sin and death our way oppose,
Battling for the Lord!
Through grace we'll conquer all our foes,
Battling for the Lord! [Refrain]

5 And when our glorious war is o'er,
Conqu'rors through the Lord!
We'll shout salvation evermore,
Conqu'rors through the Lord! [Refrain]
