The fight is on, the trum­pet sound is ring­ing out,
The cry To arms! is heard afar and near;
The Lord of hosts is march­ing on to vic­to­ry,
The triumph of the Christ will soon ap­pear.


The fight is on, O Chris­tian sold­ier,
And face to face in stern ar­ray,
With ar­mor gleam­ing, and col­ors stream­ing,
The right and wrong en­gage to­day!
The fight is on, but be not wea­ry;
Be strong, and in His might hold fast;
If God be for us, His banner o’er us,
We’ll sing the vic­tor’s song at last!

The fight is on, arouse, ye sol­diers brave and true!
Jehovah leads, and vic­to­ry will as­sure;
Go buckle on the ar­mor God has giv­en you,
And in His strength un­to the end en­dure.


The Lord is lead­ing on to cer­tain vic­to­ry;
The bow of pro­mise spans the east­ern sky;
His glo­ri­ous name in ev­ery land shall hon­ored be;
The morn will break, the dawn of peace is nigh.
