Scripture Verse

Ye sol­diers of the King of kings,
Your cap­tain calls to­day;
Oh, heed the mes­sage that He brings,
The call to arms ob­ey.


Out with the migh­ty sword of God!
Wield it in might, be strong!
The Word of God we’ll spread abroad
And tri­umph ov­er wrong.

The hosts of sin are rag­ing round,
The con­flict fierc­er grows;
March on, the Lord in glo­ry crowned,
Hath van­quished all His foes.


The vic­to­ry will soon be ours,
In Him we ne’er can fail;
O’er death, and hell, and all the pow­ers
Through Christ we shall pre­vail.
