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

We’ve enlisted in a war,
But ’tis not of flesh and blood,
Glory, glory hallelujah!
We are fighting for a crown
In the kingdom of our God,
Glory, glory hallelujah!

Refrain

Canaan, bright Canaan,
We’re marching to the happy land of Canaan;
Canaan, bright Canaan,
We’re marching to the happy land of Canaan.

The weapons of our war
Are sent us from above,
Glory, glory hallelujah!
We can not fail to conquer
With faith and hope and love,
Glory, glory hallelujah!

Refrain

Our foes are fierce and strong,
But our strength is in the Lord,
Glory, glory hallelujah!
And the vict’ry we shall win,
Trusting ever in His word,
Glory, glory hallelujah!

Refrain

Then we’ll answer each command,
And we’ll trust for every grace,
Glory, glory hallelujah!
Till our leader shall appear,
And we see Him face to face,
Glory, glory hallelujah!

Refrain
