1 Ye soldiers of the cross,
Why should ye doubt or fear?
Ye cannot know defeat or loss,
With Christ, our Captain, near.
Stand firm, be not afraid,
Courageous, not dismayed,
For one with God must always win
Against the hosts of sin.
2 Lay hold upon the sword,
Turn not to left or right,
And standing fast upon His word,
Be victors thro’ His might. [Refrain]
3 Be brave, be firm, be strong,
Be fearless in the fight;
The night of battle may seem long,
But sweet the morning’s light. [Refrain]
4 We soon shall see the day
When all our toils shall cease;
When we shall cast our arms away,
And dwell in endless peace. [Refrain]
5 This hope supports us here,
It makes our burdens light;
‘Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer,
Till faith shall end in sight. [Refrain]Source: Hymns of Praise: for the Church and Sunday School #3
