1 Strike our tents, the night is over!
See, the shadows one by one
Fade before the coming splendor
Of the morning’s golden sun.

Refrain:
Strike our tents! the trumpet sounding
Bids us now our march begin;
Strike our tents! the battle rages!
There’s a victory we must win.

2 Strike our tents! no time to linger
When the foe is on our track;
Holy voices now are calling,
Follow Jesus; look not back. [Refrain]

3 Strike our tents, nor heed the arrows
By the wary tempter hurled;
Trust in Him, our great Deliverer,
He who overcame the world. [Refrain]

4 Ne’er desert our post of duty
Till the strife of war is done;
Then in realms of endless glory
Shout thro’ Christ the victory won. [Refrain]
