FIGHT the good fight of faith!

Thy God is near thee;

He standeth by thy side,

Always to cheer thee.

What though thy foes may come

Thicker and faster?

Jesus thy Captain is,

Thy gracious Master.


Valiantly stand thy ground

A little longer;

Though strong thy foes appear,

Thy Lord is stronger,

Trust Him in every hour,

He’ll ne’er forsake thee;

Up to His heavenly home

Surely He’ll take thee.


There thou shalt praise His name;

Part from Him never;

There, in eternal peace,

Happy forever,

Look back on battles fought,

Conflicts all over,

Clothed in thy Saviour’s light,

Blest in His favor.
