1 Will you stay thro’ the warfare of right against wrong,
Tho’ the foe may be great, tho’ the conflict be long,
In the cause of your Savior prove steadfast and true,
Will you stay thro’?

Will you stay thro’?
Will you be true?
In the long hard battle the Savior needs you!
Will you stay thro’?
Will you be true?
Will you trust in your Leader,
Will you stay thro’?

2 Tho’ His trusted may falter and fall by the way,
Tho’ so many give up in the midst of the fray,
Will you bravely be steadfast your duty to do—
Will you stay thro’? [Refrain]

3 Will you stand by your Leader, all others deny,
In a full consecration will you live and die?
For eternity, now, your enlistment renew—
Will you stay thro’? [Refrain]
