1 The Lord said to Gideon: "Go forward!
For surely I’ll open the way;
Though countless the host that opposes,
Thou hast but to trust and obey."

Refrain:
The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon
Is just as effective today, hallelujah!
As it was when the great host of Midian
Was vanquished, and fled in dismay.

2 His sword never yet lost a battle;
His promises never can fail;
O Gideons, move steadily forward
No matter what foes may assail. [Refrain]

3 Be ready to throw down your pitcher;
Your lamp hold aloft in your hand;
And blow such a blast on your trumpet
’Twill echo all over the land. [Refrain]

4 Sound none but true notes on your trumpet
As over the road you shall roam;
Till Gabriel’s trump blows the signal
That calls the last Gideon home. [Refrain]
