1 Ye valiant soldiers of the cross,
Ye happy praying band,
Though in this world we suffer loss,
We’ll reach fair Canaan’s land.
Bright crowns there are, bright crowns laid up on high,
For you and me there’s a palm of victory;
There’s a palm of victory.
2 All earthly pleasures we’ll forsake,
While Heaven appears in view;
In Jesus’ strength we’ll undertake
To fight our passage through.
3 O what a glorious shout there’ll be
When Heaven at last is won;
Jesus, and all our friends, we’ll see,
And God shall say: Well done.
