Lyrics

Verse 1
“Be ye strong in the Lord and the power of His might,”
Firmly standing for the truth of His word;
He shall lead you safely through the thickest of the fight,
You shall conquer in the name of the Lord.

Chorus
Firmly stand for the right,
On to vict’ry at the King’s command;
For the honor of the Lord, and the triumph of His word,
In the strength of the Lord firmly stand.

Verse 2
“Be ye strong in the Lord and the power of His might,”
Never turning from the face of the foe;
He will surely by you stand, as you battle for the right,
In the power of His might onward go.

Verse 3
“Be ye strong in the Lord and the power of His might,”
For His promises shall never, never fail;
By thy right hand He’ll hold thee while battling for the right,
Trusting Him thou shalt for evermore prevail.
