Hymn/Song Information

There's a fight to be fought




There's a fight to be fought, there's a work to be done,
and a foe to be met ere the set of the sun,
and the call is gone out o'er the land far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?

O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?



O'er the waters it soundeth from lands far away,
where the rebel usurper holds fair realms in sway;
there are chains to be severed, and souls to be freed;
our Captain is calling; himself takes the lead.

O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?



O! true hearts have gone forth, glad and strong, to the war,
and the fame of their exploits has echoed afar;
and though brave ones have fallen, yet rich their reward;:
who dies is crowned victor by Jesus our Lord.

O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?



'Tis not each one is called in the front rank to fight,
and there's room for us all, though our strength be slight;
and the weakest and poorest some succor may bring,
if only he follows the flag of his King.

O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?



When the warfare is finished, the long struggle o'er,
and the Name of our Master all nations adore,
then the glad shout of triumph shall ring far and wide:
O joy to the victor who's on the Lord's side!
O hark! the shout of triumph resounds far and wide.
O joy to the victor who's on the Lord's side!
O hark! the shout of triumph resounds far and wide.
O joy to the victor who's on the Lord's side!

O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
O hark! the call to battle resounds far and wide.
Who'll follow the banner? Who's on the Lord's side?
