1 O Christian, gird the armor on,
And press the fight with sin!
Go forth against the hosts of wrong,
Go forth our cause to win;
The conflict wildly rages,
No longer, then, delay,
But, trusting in Jehovah’s might,
Go! watch, and fight, and pray.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! they are marching on,
Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
The armies of the living God
Are marching on.

2 O Christian, gird the armor on,
And hasten to the field;
Against the powers of darkness go,
Determined not to yield!
Clad in a full salvation,
The Spirit’s sword in hand,
From victory unto victory go!
It is the Lord’s command. [Refrain]

3 O Christian, gird the armor on,
The world is watching thee;
With prayer and supplication press
Along to victory!
Be loyal to His service,
His truth to all proclaim;
God loves a valiant warrior,
Then go in Jesus’ name. [Refrain]
