SOLDIER of Christ! Oh, lose not heart

But learn what God is like;

And in the darkest battlefield

Thou shalt know where to strike.


Oh, blest is he to whom is given

The instinct that can tell

That God is on the field, when He

Is most invisible!


And blest is he who can divine

Where real right doth lie,

And dares to take the side that seems

Wrong to man’s blindfold eye!


Oh, learn to scorn the praise of men!

Oh, learn to lose with God!

For Jesus won the world through shame,

And beckons thee His road.


And right is right, since God is God,

And right the day must win;

To doubt would be disloyalty,

To falter would be sin!
