The pure testimony, set forth in the spirit,
Cuts like a sharp, a two-edged sword,
And hypocrites now are most sorely tormented,
Because they are condemned by the word;
The pure testimony discovers the dross,
And wicked professors make light of the cross,
And Babylon trembles from fear of her loss.

Has not the time come for churches to gather
Into the one and true spirit of God,
Baptized by one spirit, all in one body,
Partaking Christ's flesh in His innocent blood?
They drink in one spirit which makes them to see
They are one in Christ Jesus wherever they be,
The " Jew and the Gentile, the bond And the free.

The pure testimony will not persecute them,
But ever will hold them the same as their own,
The pure testimony cries out separation
And Causes you still your lives to lay down.
Come out from your spirit, from your practices, too,
The track of your Savior keep well in view,
And the pure testimony will cut its way through.

Then sound the loud trumpet for pure testimony,
And let the world hear it again and again,
Come all ye from Babylon, Egypt and Sodom.
And straightway your path take over the plain;
Come, wash your robes white in the blood of the Lamb,
Come walk in the spirit as Jesus has done.
And aught but pure testimony you will overcome.

The battle is near between the two kingdoms,
The armies are gathering mighty and strong.
The pan testimony and vile persecution
Will come to close quarters and conflict ere long.
Then gird on your armor, ye saints of the Lord,
And he will protect you by his living word.
The word of the spirit will cut like a sword.

The great prince of darkness is must'ring his forces
To capture and make you his prisoner again,
By vile persecutions and sland'rous reproaches,
That you in his cause may forever remain;
Then shun his temptations wherever their sway,
Have no fear of his servants whatever they say,
And the pure testimony, will give you the day.
