50. Gird on Your Armor

1 Gird on, gird on your armor, and away,
Like heroes be firm and true;
Lead on your ranks to battle for the Lord,
Who triumphed over death and the grave for you.

Refrain:
We’ll battle to the end, we’ll battle to the end,
And then our crown we’ll wear;
We’ll gather on the shore, rejoicing evermore,
With all the noble army there.

2 Our foes are strong, but greater far is He
Whose arm is our strength and shield;
March on, march on with bold and fearless tread;
We’ll conquer by His grace, but we’ll never yield. [Refrain]

3 No faltering step, no faint and fearful heart,
No truce with the hosts of sin;
Be strong in Him, our never-failing trust;
Remember there’s a palm and a crown to win. [Refrain]
