1 Whoe'er would win the battle,
Must never mind the blows;
Whoe'er would enter heaven,
Must not turn back for foes;
But, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord.

Refrain:
I'll battle for the Lord,
Yes, battle for the Lord;
I'll shout for Truth and Victory
And battle for the Lord.

2 God's little bands are mighty,
When girded with his might;
And greatest wrongs are helpless
Before the smallest right.
Then, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Your enemies may gather,
Like clouds in days of storms;
But Truth's bright blade, like lightning,
Shall scatter their proud forms,
Then, taking all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
I'll shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]

4 The wrongs shall all be conquered,
And every foe submit;
All, in that day that's coming,
Shall fall at Jesus' feet.
But now, take all the armor,
The helmet and the sword,
And shout for Truth and Victory,
And battle for the Lord. [Refrain]
