This Life Is A Battle


This life is a battle
For Christ and the cross,
Forward is our Lord’s command;
Thro’ the thickest of the fight
Bear His banner to the height!
Rally now for God and stand!

Chorus:
We shall conquer ev’ry foe!
Praising as we go!
Rally now for God, and stand!
If our Captain we obey
We can never lose the day!
Rally now for God, and stand!

This life is a battle
For Christ and the cross,
Christians shall possess the land.
It is sin we have to smite,
And for this we must unite,
Rally now for God and stand! [Chorus]

This life is a battle
For Christ and the cross,
Stirring is the thought and grand!
So to strive is our delight,
When we’re striving for the right,
Rally now for God and stand! [Chorus]

This life is a battle
For Christ and the cross,
Vision of the Church expand!
Thro’ the darkness of the night
We are marching into light,
Rally now for God and stand! [Chorus]
