Words and Music by Leila N. Morris

Ephesians 6:11
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may
be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

          The fight is on, the trumpet sound is ringing out,
          The cry To arms! is heard afar and near;
          The Lord of hosts is marching on to victory,
          The triumph of the Christ will soon appear.

            Chorus
            The fight is on, O Christian soldier,
            And face to face in stern array,
            With armor gleaming and colors streaming,
            The right and wrong engage today!
            The fight is on, but be not weary,
            Be strong and in His might hold fast;
            If God be fore us, His banner o'er us,
            We'll sing the victor's song at last!

          The fight is on arouse, ye soldiers brave and true!
          Jehovah leads, and vict'ry will assure;
          Go buckle on the armor God has given you,
          And in His strength forever we'll endure.

            Chorus
            The fight is on, O Christian soldier,
            And face to face in stern array,
            With armor gleaming and colors streaming,
            The right and wrong engage today!
            The fight is on, but be not weary,
            Be strong and in His might hold fast;
            If God be fore us, His banner o'er us,
            We'll sing the victor's song at last!

          The fight is leading on to certain victory,
          The bow of promise spans the eastern sky;
          His glorious name in ev'ry land shall honored be,
          The morn will break the dawn of peace is nigh.

            Chorus
            The fight is on, O Christian soldier,
            And face to face in stern array,
            With armor gleaming and colors streaming,
            The right and wrong engage today!
            The fight is on, but be not weary,
            Be strong and in His might hold fast;
            If God be fore us, His banner o'er us,
            We'll sing the victor's song at last!
