Representative Text

1 Loud and sharp, O Christian soldiers,
Peals the trumpet of the Lord!
Leaping into line of battle,
Wield the spirit’s flaming sword!

Refrain:
More is Christ than all against you,
Form your columns firm and close;
Pressing on o’er trench and rampart,
You shall vanquish all your foes!

2 Fierce the conflict, but your mettle
Is the sort true manhood boasts;
Soon or late, at last shall Satan
Flee before your cheering hosts! [Refrain]

3 Who’re afraid and who are fearful,
Let them turn now and depart;
Gideon kept three hundred only,
But each man a valiant heart. [Refrain]

4 Saints on earth and saints in glory—
Clouds of witnesses around,—
Men and angels—all are praying,
Lest you halt and yield your ground. [Refrain]
