VALIANT FOR THE TRUTH




Fight the good fight; lay hold
Upon eternal life;
Keep by thy shield, be bold,
Stand through the hottest strife;
Invincible while in the field,
Thou canst not fail, unless thou yield.


No force of earth or hell,
Though fiends with men unite,
Truthís champion can compel,
However pressed, to flight;
Invincible upon the field,
He cannot fall, unless he yield.


Apollyonís arm may shower
Darts thick as hail, and hide
Heavenís face, as in the hour,
When Christ on Calvary died;
No powers of darkness in the field
Can tread thee down, unless thou yield.


Trust in thy Saviourís might;
Yea, till thy latest breath,
Fight, and like him in fight,
By dying conquer death;
And all-victorious in the field,
Then with thy sword, thy spirit yield.


Great words are these, and strong;
Yet Lord, I look to thee,
To whom alone belong
Valour and victory:
With thee, my Captain in the field,
I must prevail, I cannot yield.


---Alternative verses---


Fight the good fight; lay hold
Upon eternal life;
Keep by thy shield, be bold,
Stand through the hottest strife;
With thy great Captain on the field,
Thou canst not fail, unless thou yield.


No force of earth or hell,
Though fiends with men unite,
Truthís champion can compel,
However pressed, to flight;
He stands unmoved upon the field,
He cannot fall, unless he yield.
