Arise, Ye Soldiers

Verse 1
The dust settles
Another believer has fallen now
The enemy roars
You say we'll win, I wonder how
Our faith is gone
We cower in our many fears
The enemy's so big
There's no victory here
And then, we hear...

Chorus
Arise, ye soldiers, ye children of God!
Strength shines through when fears are raw!
Take heart, ye soldiers, victory comes
To those who trust that the battle can be won! 

Verse 2
We duck our heads
How can we still hold on
When fear is present 
When nearly all hope is gone
So cowardly
We're all losing our faith
Another comrade
Turns around and runs away
And then, we hear...

Chorus
Arise, ye soldiers, ye children of God!
Strength shines through when fears are raw!
Take heart, ye soldiers, victory comes
To those who trust that the battle can be won! 

Bridge
Arise, ye soldiers of the Lord!
String your arrows, raise your swords!
The enemy may seem better in rank
But they're about to see our strength! 
Why do you cower - come, arise!
The enemy's taunts are naught but lies!
String your arrows, raise your swords!
Arise, ye soldiers of the Lord!

Chorus
Arise, ye soldiers, ye children of God!
Strength shines through when fears are raw!
Take heart, ye soldiers, victory comes
To those who trust that the battle can be won! 
Arise, ye soldiers!
Ye soldiers - arise! 

The End
