We Are Soldiers Every One


We are soldiers ev’ry one,
And the fight is just begun,
And the Captain ever stands hard by;
For He sees our ev’ry need,
And our inmost thoughts doth read,
As we Satan’s Host defy.

Chorus:
Then forward all, for the Captain’s nigh,
Then fight full well, for He stands hard by,
With a victor’s crown.

When the foes are thick around,
And we try to stand our ground,
And each heart is ever beating high;
Then the Soldiers of the Lord
Use the Spirit’s mighty sword,
And assure the victory. [Chorus]

When our sins around us low’r,
And we feel their mighty power,
When our hearts are nearly faint with fear;
Then we look to Him above,
Whom we honour and we love,
And He says, “Be of good cheer.” [Chorus]

When the battle clouds are past,
And we find our home at last,
Then the joy of every heart shall be:
The song of living praise,
To the Father of all days,
That shall sound from sea to sea. [Chorus]
