O Christians keep your armor bright,

Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,

In u-nion strong to-geth-er fight,

Ho-san-na to our King!

Come, laud and mag-ni-fy his name,

Nor let his praises cease;

His ways are ways of plea-sant-ness, 

And all his paths are peace.

O it will be glo-rious,

With crowns and palms vic-to-ri-ous,

And Je-sus reign-ing o-ver us,

When our sad war-fare's o'er,

When our sad warfare's o'er

When our sad warfare's o'er,

And Je-sus reign-ing o-ver us

When our sad war-fare's o'er.

We will not act the coward's part,

But onward all proceed;

Our captain shall his grace impart

In every time of need.

Great peace have they who love his cause,

And on his word rely;

From such as keep his holy laws

The enemy will fly.

O it will be glorious, &c.

The world and sin may grieve us sore,

And rouse our weakest fears;

Our march is but a few days more

Through this dark vale of tears.

Death may assail and satan too,

With his opposing powers;

But let us prove our valor true,

The victory is ours.

O it will be glorious, &c.
