Representative Text

1 When ye are met by tow’ring foes
That tempt thee and thy way oppose,
Put forth the strength that overthrows,
Stand strong, stand strong, stand strong!

Refrain:
Stand strong, stand strong,
Stand strong wherever ye go!
Stand strong for truth—for right, and for God,
Stand strong, and true victory know!

2 How many a man will weakly fall,
And yield to pow’r that must enthrall,
When he might conquer over all,
If he had but stood strong. [Refrain]

3 If many friends ye count your own,
And help to battle wrong be shown;
Or if for right ye stand alone,
Stand strong, stand strong, stand strong! [Refrain]

4 Thy strength grows stronger when ye win.
The smallest vict’ry over sin;
‘Gainst wrong without and wrong within,
Stand strong, stand strong, stand strong! [Refrain]
