For the fight is not yours, but the Lord's....
To the faint and the weak He increaseth
The abundance of courage and pow'r,
And the song of the victors who triumph,
Shall be heard where the stormclouds low'r;
Unto Him be the pow'r of dominion,
Unto Him be the wisdom and might,
In the hearts of the true and the loyal,
Be the courage to march and to fight.
Hear the words of the Captain who calleth,
"Lift your hearts, and be still undismay'd,"
'Tis the Lord who will order the battle,
Trust in Him, be Thou not afraid;
By and by when the conflict is over,
We will rest by the River of Life,
Unto God shall be then all the glory,
For the courage that won in the strife.
