Scripture Verse

We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

Lo, the conflict of the ages
Is upon us today,
And the armies are assembling
All in battle array;
Are you numbered with the faithful,
One of God’s loyal few,
Who have sworn Him full allegiance?
Can He count upon you?


Have your eyes caught the vision?
Have your hearts felt the thrill?
To the call of the Master
Do you answer, I will?
For the conflict of the ages,
Told by prophets and by sages,
In its fury is upon us,
Is upon us today.

Catch the vision of a lost world
Going downward in sin,
While the Master’s great commission
Long unheeded has been;
See the children of the kingdom
Joined in heart and in hand,
Pressing forward in the struggle
To redeem this fair land.


See the Church of God awaking
And with glorious zest
She is laying on her altars
Now her noblest and blest;
T’ward the final consummation
We are hastening on,
And the time for loyal service
Will forever be done.
