167. At the Battle's Front

1 I’ve enlisted for life in the army of the Lord,
Though the fight may be long, and the struggle fierce and hard;
With the armor of God and the Spirit’s trusty sword,
At the front of the battle you will find me.

Refrain:
Hear the tramp! tramp! tramping of the army,
The triumph shouting, the foe we’re routing;
Hear the tramp! tramp! tramping of the army,
Marching on to victory;
I’m in this army, this glorious army,
And the God of battles will defend me;
I’m in this army, this glorious army,
At the front of the battle you will find me.

2 With the banner of love and of holiness unfurled,
Full salvation proclaim to a sinful, dying world;
Though the darts thick and fast from the enemy be hurled,
At the front of the battle you will find me. [Refrain]

3 Is your name, friend, enrolled with the loyal ones and true?
Will you dare now to stand with the Savior’s faithful few?
Will you join with me now and the covenant renew?
At the front of the battle you will find me. [Refrain]
